17th Annual Smithsonian.com Photo Contest
Total Solar Eclipse from the Elqui Valley, Chile

This is the "Diamond Ring" effect that occurs at the beginning and end of a total solar eclipse. The picture was taken at the very end of totality, as the sun's light was starting to emerge from behind the moon.
