Cedar Mesa, Utah
We traveled to southern Utah to see the annular solar eclipse on the 14th and to visit with family and friends. The annular eclipse was definitely interesting, but for my money it paled (no pun intended) in comparison to the total eclipse we witnessed in 2017. That total eclipse was one of the most, if not the most, spectacular and surreal natural events I’ve ever seen. But YMMV. Regardless I did take the time to photograph the annular eclipse so I thought I’d post something, even though there’s of course no shortage of photos of it on social media. To make mine a bit more interesting I combined a photo of the eclipse at its most perfectly annular stage encircling a photo of a rock on the ground with eclipse images formed by, in this case, a gap someone formed with their hands, or possibly their armpit of all things.
