Collage of the Total Solar Eclipse of August 21st, 2017. The top image shows the first 'bite' out of the sun by the covering moon. The phase at the three o'clock position is the moon making its way across the sun. The bottom image at six o'clock shows the moon almost completely covering the sun. The image at nine o'clock is the moon leaving the sun and restoring the normal view. Center image is during totality, showing what is known as the 'diamond ring' where sunlight skips off the mountains and canyons of the irregularities on the surface of the moon.
BNSF (Burlington Northern Santa Fe) locomotive crossing the Missouri River at Sibley, Missouri near Fort Osage. This vibrant image puts you there, on the tracks, with power and bulk looming in front of you! I was on bended knee behind my tripod on the tracks just past the bridge itself, and had only a moment to capture this as the locomotive was definitely headed my way. Photographic decisions had to be made correctly and on time to avoid disaster.
