Horses in Abstract, Diptych
I was out taking long exposure photographs of the soft evening light. These photographs I created an hour ago however, we’re completely by accident as a result.
Having my camera all set up at a slow shutter speed, I must have spooked these two beautiful show jumping horses, which then proceeded to gallop up and down the field. Without thinking about my camera I just shot away and these were the beautiful results that occurred.

A ‘Ring of Fire’ solar eclipse is a rare phenomenon that occurs when the moon’s orbit is at its apogee: the part of its orbit farthest away from the Earth. Because the moon is so far away, it seems smaller than normal to the human eye. The result is that the moon doesn’t entirely block out our view of the sun, but leaves an “annulus,” or ring of sunlight glowing around it. Hence the term “annular” eclipse rather than a “total” eclipse.
