The May 20 annular eclipse as seen over the Pueblo Bonito great house site in Chaco Culture National Historical Park in northwestern New Mexico. This is a series of 17 exposures taken at 5 minute intervals with a Thousand Oaks Optical black polymer solar filter gel over the lens. I then shot a background landscape frame after the sun set without the solar filter. Image assembled in Photoshop. Amazing place to witness the eclipse.
