When given the chance, always go for the easiest solution - cover the eyepiece when shooting LE with the sun shining directly on the back of your camera...

This guy is a part of the "included in box" list for a reason.

This is isn't a simple matter of light entering the viewfinder which invariably leaves horizontal lines on the image, this could be a bizarre combination of things going wrong at the same time - I'm looking at the fogging and deep magenta cast that appears on the right side of the shoreline. You weren't trying to use pixel shift by any chance?
Agree. I've been using this filter and technique for two years with no issues so some combination of things caused this. And no, I was not using pixel shift.

I would clean the filter. Remove it and clean it. It looks like smudge marks of some sort of light oily residue that got smudged around somehow.
Thanks but I inspected the filter carefully and I can find no marks or signs of oil or damage. And images shot the next day are fine.

More sample images might help. Good luck!
Good idea, let me see if I can get some more up to show the pattern.

Daft question, do you have a cap(hat) or shirt with "Zigzag Mountain Art" on it. The pattern looks like "AIN" on all pictures

One way to check the filter would be to rotate it, say 90 degrees, to see if the marks move or not.

Were they all shot on the same lens? Perhaps check the front and rear elements carefully with a LED light.
Sometimes greasy smears are not visible with the eye but are with a a bright light.
