/ What's the reason for this?
What's likely to have caused this, and how could it be reduced/avoided?
It's caused by lens flare. Simple explanation here: -
Easily prevented by using your hand as a sunshade and casting a shadow over the lens,
Nah, let him get a lens hood, they make lenses look so much better! :p
I bought one from Jessops the day before they went belly up, unfortunately their own brand caused vignetting.
Probably more down to a wide angle lens than the actual hood. As Chris says, use your hand or something like a map to shield the lens.

And how will that save your lens when it stots off the rock? 1st year using a camera on the crag.
My taxes PAY for that? I despair!!!
