15th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Diamond Ring, Great American Eclipse 2017

The diamond ring effect, captured during the Great American Eclipse 2017. We were at the Ft. Kaskaskia State Historic Site in Illinois, right on the center line. Overlooking the confluence of the Mississippi and Kaskaskia rivers, it was a wonderful location for the eclipse with a bit of early American history for good measure.
