Today I wanted to get a graphic image of a Dandelion seed head. I had the idea of getting the sun behind it and making it a silhouette with the sun in it. You have to be really careful when doing this to keep yourself from getting your eye damaged by the sun. The idea is to focus on the edge of the dandelion without the sun in it. Take your eye away from the viewfinder and then swing the lens over to where you think the sun will be included and take the image. That's the idea anyway. My eye hurts a little from catching the edge of the sun in the frame. The best way to do it is to use a pair of welding goggles. Next time I'll wait until I have a pair handy.
God's love and blessings to all,
