Total Solar Eclipse - 2009

“The universe is dynamic, so are the photographer's thoughts ”

In continuation to the last post I thought of sharing the picture I took of the eclipse. It was a majestic sight to see and photograph this phenomenon where the sun is engulfed by moon. At the time of Totality there was a vibrant feel in the air, it was like experiencing sunrise twice in a day. The birds were tweeting and fluttering as if they also realize some irregularity in the normal day cycle.
