I was enjoying the sun out on my patio a little while ago when I saw that every passing cloud held colors as they passed the sun. Today was unusually bright and colorful due to the very low humidity and bright sun. The sky was a very deep shade of blue.

I grabbed my 400mm on the 7D and snapped some passing airplanes and then got some clouds that made a perfect solar filter for me.

Very cool shots. Just as was said, gotta have the camera ready for anything.

Thanks. I usually keep the long lens on the camera because I have less control over far away subjects...they don't always wait for me to change lens. Close subjects are either stationary, or speak my language.

LOve the first shot.
Don't see that very often.

Maybe the area you live in but not where i'm at where skies are clear most of the time . Other than that i have no time to argue with you on the subject . If it happens all the time then post as many as you can in the next 6 months that you personally have taken . Do that starting today , not what you have in the past or ones that someone else has taken .
