15th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
The eclipse in the clouds

I picked my spot early in the morning only to have the Sky cloud over at around 1:08PM, at about 2:20 I packed up and hiked back around the little lake I was at and found a spot that was clear enough to get some kind of shot, then just as totality started the clouds parted and I was amazed at how beautiful it was.
