Photo with 13 notes

After shooting at my narrowest aperture and fastest shutter speed (f36, 1/8000) in my hunt to snap a shot of Venus in front of the Sun, I was disappointed to find that all I was able to capture was a big bright ball. However, as I turned down the exposure on the RAW file in post, I did six back flips when I saw a little black dot show up on the big bright ball. This phenomenon won’t happen again until 2117.
