15th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Total eclipse from Madras, OR, 12 exposure composite

This was taken near Madras, OR, from a wide-open spot affording views of Mt Hood and Mt Washington. I found the eclipse to be staggeringly beautiful, my hands were shaking so I could barely hold the binoculars. This is an HDR fusion of 12 exposures from 1/2000 to 1 sec.
