A shadow of myself created from the eclipse

As an avid photographer, something like the eclipse is a dream of mine. Something so beautiful, so rare, and so short is something that I had to go see. So my family piled in the car and made the trek from New Jersey to Tennesee to get in the optimal viewing area, as well as to visit my grandparents. With the eclipse only lasting two minutes and forty seconds, I knew I had no time to waste taking test pictures and changing settings. This picture was taken by accident, before I even put in the settings I thought would be best, but somehow it came out better than all the rest.
