Total solar eclipse Longyearbyen March 20 2015

It was very cold on March 20 2015 just outside Longyearbyen one of the northernmost city on earth. In -9.4 degrees F, I walked for over 2 hours among the anticipating crowd before turning to look and photograph the sun. I wanted to convey the notion that we are all guests for an eye blink on this planet.
