When using appropriate safe filters and equipment photographing the sun can be great fun and very rewarding. It is after all, the one of the few types of astrophotography you can do during the day.
While not a large focus of mine, I have enjoyed capturing some special solar events including the Transit of Venus in 2012. Travelling hundreds of kilometers I was one of the few lucky locals who was able to see and photograph the once in a lifetime event.
This page contains a small collection of my solar astrophotography.
