13 Stunning Solar Eclipse Photos of 2017

13 Stunning Solar Eclipse Photographs of 2017

Scrolling through my Instagram today, I saw so many stunning photographs from today’s solar eclipse. Here are 13 of my faves.

The only shot I got from todays eclipse.. I know… I know everyone is posting these pictures. But the feeling of sitting on top of a mountain, laying on rocks and pine needles, all alone with the Earth, staring at the sky as three things that makes life possible align in perfect harmony is a thing I won't soon forget. The changing of temperatures as the sun hid behind the moon, the lighting of the world I know turning the earth into something unrecognizable but beautiful. The way it brought millions of people together for such a small amount of time to forget the problems of the world and realizing how small we really are. But how connect we truly are is a memory that will last a lifetime. #eclipse #weareone #threebecomeone #kuiraba #nikon #lunalife #thisishowitssupposedtobe #playwinterpark #throughmyeyes

The Great American Eclipse as seen from Oregon. Millions of people gathered to the narrow path of totality to witness one of the most epic astronomical phenomenons of the century. Smoke filled the valley over Detroit Lake. Mt. Jefferson towered in the distance but was blocked by the smoke from wildfires. As the eclipse came into totality, the air became colder, and the smoke dropped a little, revealing the mountain for the 2 minutes of totality. The sky gave a twilight mood as the landscape darkened by the shadow of the moon. Colors began to pop as if it was just another sunset or sunrise. Planets and stars were visible along with the midday sun. Our original spot along the coast was fogged in, so we booked it to a spot we originally wanted to experience the event. Took a power nap and got ready for the show. This was the most incredible experience of mine, and possibly many others lifetime. I'm glad I got to experience this with Darian Westbrook. A moment we will never forget <3 Hope you guys enjoy the image 🙂 . . . #landscape #artofvisuals #visualsoflife #beautifuldestinations #thelensbible #discoverlandscape #earthpix #earthfocus #exploretocreate #travelstoke #fantastic_earth #bevisuallyinspired #modernoutdoorsman #nakedplanet #ourplanetdaily #agameoftones #stayandwander #wildernessculture #welltravelled #collectivelycreate #welivetoexplore #roamtheplanet #theglobewanderer #thegreatoutdoors #eclectic_shotz #moodygrams #oregon #eclipse #totality

Yesterday's solar eclipse was simply an experience rivaled by no other celestial event that I have witnessed. Scrambling madly during totality to get my solar filter off was an exercise in absolute frustration. My tripod not allowing me to point the camera up sufficiently was equally frustrating. I had to prop my camera against a pole while mounted to the tripod to have some semblance of stability during the less than two minutes of totality, but I did manage to get this one as the sun was emerging from behind the moon. I will post the others later this week. Note the one visible star in the upper left hand side. #nature_sultans #naturelover_gr #InstaNatureFriends_ #naturehippys_ #wildlife_seekers #macroworld_tr #macro_perfection #macroexperienice #macro_holic #best_macro #macro_in_bl #bns_macro #photoflair_macro #arte_of_nature #MacroClique #macromood #fingerprintofgod #nature_of_our_world #wms_macro #macro_turkey #ig_shotz #princely_shotz #igbest_shotz #masters_in_macro #popgoesthesun #eclipse2017 #nature #totality #totaleclipse #eclipse

Day turns into Night. Seeing our first solar eclipse in totality was an extraordinary visual experience. We were so fortunate to view the Eclipse from the top of @grandtargheeresort . The epic view of the Tetons with the eclipse above, all while watching the shadow of the moon as it traveled across the valley from the west. The low midday clouds suddenly turned the color of sunset peach, day turned to night, and a cold evening chill enveloped us. It was as if our entire concept of time had become compressed, "real time" felt like hyper time lapse . Stay tuned…as I will be posting a 360 video which captures this magic in its entirety, along with a big picture. #eclipse #tetontotality #grandtargheeresort #grandtarghee #totaleclipse #moonshadow #darknessatnoon
