Lost in the glow of the ring

From the Great American Eclipse in Elkton KY. I caught this image at 1:28:12pm CDT. It nearly took my breath away as the image popped up on my laptop. I used my Ha modified Canon 450D (hence the reddish tint,) an Orion 100ED refractor with a Orion glass solar filter. ISO 200, 1/125th sec. at F/9. What a glorious day!
