I was just wondering about how you took this. My camera manual says that it's extremely dangerous to put the sun directly in the frame- could cause a fire, or vision problems. What sort of filter or such equipment did you use? sorry I'm basically a noob when it comes to anything that doesn't come already attached to the cam.
I have some kind of filter that I got when I got the camera but I forget what it was... UV, or just like to keep the lens from getting dirty. I should remember but I don't. yeah I'm sort of paranoid about blinding myself... I love the sun and sometimes it's so pretty that I can't help but look at it for a while. And then I see spots later in the day and then freak out. heh
