15th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Solar Eclipse Through the Gateway Arch

I traveled to St. Louis to photograph the 2017 solar eclipse beneath the Gateway Arch. I debated driving another 10 minutes south to see the eclipse in its totality, but decided to concentrate on capturing a unique image of the eclipse that only the Gateway Arch could provide.
