Canyon Eclipse
Photo By Michael Strickland

  • Title: Canyon Eclipse
  • State/Province/Region: Arizona
  • Country: United States
  • Nearest Area: Grand Canyon National Park
  • Nearest Town: Tusayan
  • Best Season: Summer
  • Description: On May 20, 2012, an annular solar eclipse occured, which was visible from many places in the southwest. The light produced by the eclipse was incredibly interesting and difficult to describe. Honestly, if you didn't know there was an eclipse, you'd barely notice a difference! But when full annularity occurred, there was a cool temperature to the light, which was bizarre for an hour before sunset. After a long day of standing in the heat, the coolness of the shadow of the moon was a great relief, which is the feeling I feel I've portrayed in this photograph.
  • Gear: Nikon D5100, 14-24mm f/2.8, Gitzo 5 Series Systematic tripod, RRS BH-55 Ball head
