16th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
A Glimpse Within Darkness

A photograph taken of the 2017 eclipse. When the eclipse was going on I only had one pair of eclipse glasses. I had to decide whether to wear them and watch the eclipse, or put them on the lens of my camera and hope for the best.
