Taking pictures of the Sun has been generally warned against by camera manufacturers, because optics can very quickly concentrate too much heat on the film or sensor surface. But everyone keeps doing it! Sun behind clouds is one of the safer ways of doing it. And sometimes, this is a source of very beautiful images. Show some of yours!
