16th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Eclipse Crescents

I was photographing my one and only total solar eclipse at Mitchell, Oregon. Camping with East Bay Astronomical Association members. I was able to get good shots of totality. Then I turned my camera to the crescents that were formed by the tree leaves, which acted like lenses.
