    What you're after is a polarizing filter. They're actually like two polarized pieces of glass one in front of the other. The front one rotates so that you can control the degree of polarization. I use one all the time on my Nikon. Here's a photo I took on Castaway Cay that shows how they look.

    Tom (... I'm polarized too!)
    What a lovely shot, the clouds were like that last night thought my glasses but not to my eye. is that also taken with a wide angle lens or standard?

    Just so mum doesn't feel all alone...

    Remember the holographic glasses they gave out one year at the Osborne Spectacle of Lights? The ones that turned all the lights to angels?

    I went 'round the whole of the backlot one night snapping photos through the lens of those glasses.

    And I was absolutely sober.

    Thanks! The clouds looking like that is the polarizing filter speaking.

    That was taken with my Nikon 18-200mm f/3.5-5.6 G ED-IF AF-S VR DX. Set pretty wide according to the EXIF data associated with the picture and, of course, my somewhat limited memory!

    Tom (... does that help?)
