Shiprock's Horn, Partial Solar Eclipse

Shiprock, New Mexico, 2014

Just a couple weeks after the lunar eclipse, I photographed October's partial solar eclipse, which occurred about two hours before sunset.  Because the sun was still relatively high in the sky, I needed something tall or on a hill or mountainside for a silhouetted foreground; a horn on the flanks of Shiprock worked well.  I used a ten-top neutral density filter so I could safely view and photograph the sun directly.  Some backlit, thin clouds gave the appearance of smoke around the sun.
