Hi.

Because they were forecasting clouds for the whole day except very early in the morning, I get out of bed around 6am and sketched the sun. After the last sketch, clouds were rolling in. While sketching, the conditions were exceptionally good, superb stability. I got a flare on the 3rd sketch.

Just to let you know, this may 10th was the last of a 11 days in a row ! That's an absolute record for me. And just prior of that serie, I had 9 days in a row. So if april 29th had been a clear day, I would had 21 days in a row !

Andre.

Hi Tams. Welcome in my sketches.

I like you name as many years ago, I had a photography professor names Tibor Bognar... Nice to see a Bognar again.

Nice work Andre,
Looks like the sunspot on the close up is smiling at us.
