Total solar eclipse beaming through translucent cloud

This is an image of the total solar eclipse of 2017 in Kansas City, Missouri. I have waited 4 years to view this beautiful phenomenon. It took my breath away to see the image that I was finally able to capture. I am incredibly blessed to have gotten the chance to view such beauty.
