I had obtained Solar Eclipse glasses from my Astronomy professor months prior and was well prepared for this life-changing day. With a camera in my lap and adventurous minds, my dad and I set off on a journey from Florida to South Carolina. We drove and drove until finally pulling over in a tiny town. I set up my tripod, put on the glasses and waited.
The sky began to dim, frogs croaked and the crickets started chirping. It was truly as if the sun had set midday. I can’t quite explain the rush this all gave me, nor can my photos do a justice. However, just as my Astronomy professor predicted: I’M HOOKED. I hope to experience more Solar Eclipses in my lifetime- one of the beautiful gifts our universe gives to us.
