What a wonderful idea for a thread Mike!
I shot a few suns myself  8)
This is the summer sun in Tallinn, Estonia.
Shot through the hotel window in IR, D200 + 300/4.5.

TY Jakov!

Wow!  How cool is that! 

Someday I would like to dabble in IR photography.  So very interesting.  :)

The desert sun sure looks warm :) Hoping for a warm summer under the northern sky as well.

Warm it can get!  TG 4 AC!  :)

I'll send you guys the extra digits your way!  To a nice warm summer.  Cheers!

Andrea and I were racing out of Tucson, Arizona, to get to the spot for which I had envisioned shooting the giant Saguaro cacti against the sunset. We had been there earlier, but sun position was all wrong, so had to wait until late in the afternoon.

However with the sinking sun reflecting off the side mirror in conjunction with Andrea's fast-paced driving (oh well, as fast as a Focus Escape can go, which is not NASCAR style), the tune and lyrics of the Pink Floyd song 'Two Suns in the Sunset'* instantly filled my senses and I did my best to make that into an image. Not that easy within the cramped space at hand and Andrea believing I was about to fall out of the car which I nearly did. But I got my shot.

(continued from last post)

When we finally got to the planned Saguaro location, the sun already had gone under the horizon. But now the planets Venus and Jupiter adorned the sky to make a striking contrast to the classic Saguaro shape.

On the first trip to south Africa, in 2009, I was amazed how fast the sun rose in the morning and how big the disk appeared.

This is the morning sun rising over my local lake, during a period of severe cold. At that night we had down to -25C which of course is nothing extreme, but quite unusual for Oslo with its coastal climate. The lake still hadn't frozen over as it is quite deep and remains ice-free until late November or December most years. The recent spell of frost initiated ice sheet forming along the lake shores though. The supercooled surface water lapped against the edges of these ice sheets and made the lake into a giant ice-cube machine. Quite photogenic in fact and I spent many a cold morning there capturing these marvels of Nature.

Andy - I love Namibia #1

Bjorn - great sunset shot.  I love the way side mirrors look on the road, and you used it well here.

Akira - nice shot of the birdies!
