Total Eclipse over Parque Provincial Bajo de Véliz

Total Eclipse over Parque provincial Bajo de Véliz, Argentina, July 2, 2019. An image long in the making. Flew from the USA to Argentina, planned the trip over a year in advance. Stumbled across this valley the morning of the eclipse after abruptly changing plans due to cloud forecasts. Looking closely you can see stars in the image. The light from the eclipse is also not lens flare, but light from the Corona. The dark area of the sky is dark because of the shadow. While only being my second to observe, the eclipse gives me a weird feeling of happiness to see it, somberness about its fleeting nature.
