    Nice I really like the cloud formations in these ones Roundball. I get the same round ring flare with my Minolta MD24 F2.8 when the sun is place in the middle of the frame.

    OK, I can't say that I'd ever want any of my lenses doing that to me. But it is kind of cool. :laugh:

    Neither have I...very intense sun even fully stopped down plus a c-PL filter plus a 2 stop ND filter...assumed it was that combination...noticed if I got it perfectly aimed the circle would appear...and in less than a minute as the sun angle changed I couldn't ever recreate it again...thought it was worth sharing as it was so unique

    Had the good fortune of a TV weather section airing this photo last night...those wispy cloud patterns are known as "Mare's Tails"...and are the result of atmospheric conditions just prior to rain. Back in the old days 'Mare's Tails' were used to predict such pending rain...(on a local level of course).
