I know the road... I used to fly radio controlled gliders from Cox Tor, very cool.

Very unusal photos, John. They almost display painting qualities. I usually tend to make a distiction but in this case all three appealed to me equally

Very nice John.

I am always afraid to point my digital into the sun for fear of damaging the sensor. You seem fearless in this regard. Have you or anyone else had problems doing this?

Thanks for comments folks.

Bill: I'm a bit wary of pointing straight at the sun too: especially with a 17x zoom strapped on! When the suns a bit hazy and almost below the horizon I think it's probably OK, but the first one was touch and go I think: the digital viewfinder went crazy with all that light input hitting it so I didn't hang around with that, just point and shoot and then look away quick and hope for the best! It helps to be using an old and by now probably worthless camera of course :-) I would be a lot more wary with a new DSLR I think!

John.

Very nice John, especially #2. That's some serious zoom. (BTW what gear do you use?)

Hope you don't mind, but I ran some noise reduction (Noiseware) on #2 to try and remove some of the grain. The result might be a bit overly soft. You could probably get better results on your original image (ie not resized for the web).

Cheers,
Ollie

Thanks Ollie and Kev.

Ollie: I like what you've done the softness suits it quite nicely actually!

I'm using a 3 year old Kodak DX6490, 4 MPixel, 10x zoom, with an Olympus TCON17 1.7x tele converter on the front.

John.
