Photo365 – Day 164 – Into the sun

“Never shoot into the sun” was something you were always told not to do.  That was in the days of standard coated lenses with minimal exposure control. The modern cameras are pretty good at coping, as can be seen here with the Olympus EP2 and its 17mm f/2.8 lens. I took this tonight when I decided to break routine and go for a cycle along Worksop canal. This is around lock 23. It has a pocket of warm light on a clear evening and the light is golden. After walking or cycling on a path that’s relatively dark and sheltered from sun, reaching this bit is quite magical.
