Indecent exposure

I took the above image this morning at about 6 a.m. Quite frankly, it didn’t look anything like this at all. Looking almost straight into the sun, pretty much blinded me to anything in that direction -what I experienced was a nucleated blast of radiation, (light) that pretty much wiped out any detail, or point of reference. For all I knew, there could have been a furiously ferocious horde of in-bred (aren’t they all?) bunny rabbits launching themselves out of the shadows and upon my person, with grievous mal-intent.

Fortunately, there wasn’t.

To get this shot, I pretty much had to push my camera to it’s extremes. I stopped my lens down to f9; had the shutter speed maxed out @1/8000 of a second, (one of the few occasions when the mechanics of a camera can best human capability) and even had the exposure value set to -1.3!

It’s one of the reasons why I shoot manually almost all the time.
