appears on my images. It is easy to see with a white background. The lens is clean and I never remove it...does anyone know what causes this?

Does this shape become more defined at smaller apertures? It's probably dust on the sensor. Dust can still sneak in even if you rarely change lenses. The cameras aren't perfectly sealed.

I can do you one better than that. I've got a piece of dust trapped between the filter and the actual surface of my sensor. No amount of cleaning with a swab will fix that. I'm gonna have to send my camera away to cure that problem.

Here's an article on how to clean your sensor. Sensor cleaning at photo.net

Thanks to those that responded. The manual for the Nikon D70 walks you through cleaning the "low-pass" filter that is behind the mirror. I blew off the filter and took a shot of a white wall and it appears that little bugger is gone!

I bet moisture has built up on the sensor and particles have settled in there.

Leaving your lens on does not necessarily mean that your sensor is saved from the elements.
