Black Hole Sun
Totality is such a fleeting experience; so much happens in such a short amount of time that it can be absolutely dizzying; as a photographer, that translates to a laundry list of things to be certain of in a very short span of time. Did I take the solar filter off of the lens? Is my lens stabilized? Do I have the ISO and the settings correct? Most importantly...will the weather hold up? The weather was my very biggest concern when shooting the eclipse...and in a stroke of absolutely cosmic luck, we got to see the eclipse surrounded by a halo of clouds. Had we been even a mile or two in any other direction, we wouldn't have seen it...and yet, there it was. Just as the eclipse started to end, the moon moving away from the solar disc, the clouds began to roll in...and as the clouds started to obscure the sun, the brilliant and aptly named "diamond ring" effect (where the sun's light forms a brilliant 'gem' at the apex of the lunar disc) took shape. It took me weeks after the fact to realize I'd even captured the effect, as I pored through all the hundreds and hundreds of eclipse photographs I took, all in the pursuit of that one perfect, shining image. I couldn't be happier that I managed to capture it.
