15th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Sunset at Noon

During the great American eclipse, I traveled to North Carolina to catch a glimpse at totality. But when the eclipse started, the sun/moon was completely covered by clouds. Luckily, about 30 seconds later, the clouds parted slightly, leaving the sun to light up the clouds with a fire-like tint.
