Reesie and her bauble

You know, ever since I found The Chronicles of Prydain in the library in grade school, the use of the word "Bauble" instantly draws up the mental picture of Princess Eilonwy and her bauble.

 

So this is me blowing out the sun with a shutter speed of 1/2500th and an aperture of f/4.0. Because I RTFM, I discovered that the flash can't actually dump out a full powered burst in 1/2500th of a second, so I bumped the power down until it would fit the burst within the time allotted.

 

I ran a PC extension cord to the flash, so this is triggered by wires, not optically.

 

And let me tell you, it sucked trying to get this composed. But it looks absolutely CRAZY. I love it. :D

 

Some notes on how I did this.
