In case you wonder about the header image on this page: It was taken during a flight over the Karakorum Range in northern Pakistan, with perfect visibility of K2.
Our last day in Sichuan started off with a bang:
My D80 was stopped down to the max at f/38 and 1/4000 s, with a C-PL adding another 2 stops. In theory, a faster shutter speed could have saved me some blurriness due to diffraction at this aperture, but photographing eclipses is not really about maxing out your 10 megapixels, is it?
Light changes fast in this situation, and during the total eclipse ISO 800 was needed at f/5.6.
