I couldn't get a photo of the eclipse up for reasons described in my story. That being said, I still can't get over the complete sense of awe that seeing the eclipse in totality put me in. About a minute before totality, when just a sliver of sun was peeking out from behind the moon, it got dark. Fast. I couldn't get over the subconscious sense of dread that my body instinctively felt from seeing the entire landscape darken so quickly. Then the ring of white light formed and day turned to night. The emotional sense of shock reminded me of seeing fireworks for the first time as a child, but exponentially stronger.
This doesn't tie into the photo at all. In fact, we watched the eclipse from a stagnant, algae-filled lake that I wouldn't let #Poppymoose jump into, so she was mostly just miffed with me all day.
