But you returned ... safe and sound. We all enjoy that special vision of yours.

These days I'm mostly exploring the 100/1.6 on the Z cameras, using my DIY focusing adapter.

Birna, thank you for your kind words. Perhaps I will by a Z camera one day. At the moment I cannot see how it will benefit my photography...

Mr Paco, always nice to read your apreciation, thank you!

Thomas, I will gladly accept the master title that you have given me, thank you!

Thank you Ashlandish, I love flowers no matter the lens used, too :)

John, you are lovely and sweet, thanks!

It isn't usually wise to shoot the heligon directly into the sun  ;)

If you develop this practice as a new standard, the sensor on your camera might be damaged over time. Just a friendly caution.

Super nice picture, though.

Fascinating and novel use of that lens, Jakov - capturing solar rays instead of x-rays.

Great image.

My apologies for not getting back to this thread sooner.

Erik, thank you, i am glad you like it!
John, thanks to you, too!
Akira, Akira, Akira :)
Birna, thanks, i am not planning on damaging my eyes. At f1.6 it can really be a challenge looking into the sun.
Werner, i agree, fast with a fast lens is the way too go :D, thanks!
Mike, thank you for compliments, i really appreciate it!
Olé, Paco to you too, thanks!

Here is another one facing the sun, not that extreme though.
