This image was taken with a tripod-mounted Fuji FinePix S2 digital camera at ISO 400, a 1/350 sec exposure using a 300 mm Nikkor telephoto lens at f8.
Right place, right time, right equipment. The eclipsed sun's "ring of fire" is almost perfectly aligned with a distant windmill, spinning in the evening breeze.
