Shot freehand (could not bring my tripod on the plane) at the moment of totality. I am amazed the picture turned out at all. As you can see there were clouds overhead, but you can still see the sun corona. It was a truly amazing event.

    You got excellent results with great rim light around it...We only had a partial eclipse and got mostly flare but it was awesome to see through the solar glasses and can only imagine how thrilling it would be to see the total eclipse!
