15th Annual Smithsonian.com Photo Contest
On August 21st, 2017 I had the great fortune of seeing the totality of the solar eclipse from Table Mountain overlooking Grand Teton. Words cannot describe the beauty and power of seeing the eclipse for the first time. I've always imagined the sun as a ball in the sky. To see it as a living-breathing amorphous creature with flaring tendrils was breathtaking. In the right had side of the frame you can see the tiny shape of the 150 people who made the 14 mile roundtrip hike to experience the eclipse.
