Ring of Fire: Stunning image shows a boy standing on a ridge, watching the solar eclipse, is totally encompassed by the outline of the sun; taken about 1.5 miles away
Photographer Colleen Pinski was prepared to travel to the ends of the earth to get this stunning picture of a solar eclipse. The 27-year-old dashed 370 miles in her car from her home in Denver, Colorado to Albuquerque, New Mexico to find the perfect spot to see it, only after finding out the day before that the astonishing natural event was taking place.
After she found the perfect location, she still had to capture the eclipse over a ridge 1.5 away. As Colleen’s amazing image shows, her efforts paid off with this beautiful photograph of a boy perfectly framed against the eclipse on Sunday, May 20, 2012.
Colleen added later that she had just about given up but kept trying because she knew it would be a once in a lifetime opportunity.
