Weekly Photo Challenge – Contrasts

SunIMG_0285

(Two images) The sun and the moon – two universal contrasts. The better the contrast on the moon, the better the view. The sun photograph was taken with a solar filter on my telescope, which acted as my camera’s lens.

To see other interpretations of Contrasts, visit the Daily Post’s Weekly Photo Challenge here.

… and sunshine, of course! Alas, it’s pouring rain again here in Tallahassee, Florida, so I have some free time to go through some photographs. That’s a good thing, as Martha (Stewart) would say. 😉

The Traveling Sun Spot

I viewed the sun at three different times today, and each time this glorious orb gave much to see. Following are pics from the second and third viewings (using my telescope, camera, and solar filter). Click the pictures to see the descriptions and all of the sun spots!Image

This photo was taken with a 2x “doubler” so this picture is not cropped! Looks much more impressive through the eyepiece, in this case, my camera.
