There’s Always the Sun

 

This is the result of a failed experiment. I mounted my EOS1 on a tripod with a long lens and loaded it with Ilford HP5+.  I pointed it at the sun, using a filter over the lens and this is what I got.

All of the detail in the sky has been blocked by the filter but you can actually see the orb of the sun for a change – interestingly the light cloud cover which was over the sun has gone as well.  Unfortunately it was also too dark for the company that develops my film to spot and they didn’t scan it.  So, I’ve had to do an amateur scan job on it and invert the colours using Photoshop to come up with this.  It looks like I’ll need to use a much longer exposure next time.
