What a wonderful experience on 26th February, 2016, in the deep Argentinian Patagonia. Me and my friend, we both were witnessed by deep and incredibly short annular solar eclipse (duration about 47 sec.) in the sky with absolutely no cloud! The eclipse was so deep that even if the Sun wasn’t covered totally, the nature got darker tints and all shadows were drab. The place we chose was just a few dozens of meters from pleasant campsite, on the shore of small river close to Facundo village in Chubut, Argentina. My friend Dano was enjoying the event with huge pride as he traveled so far from his home in Slovakia. This is why he also he dropped large flag of his country on the ground. And so did I… Used Canon 6D, Samyang 24 mm, f4, ISO 100. For the eclipse frames taken exposures 1/200s (and Baader filter), for the foreground (captured as panorama just shortly after the maximum of the eclipse) taken exposures 1/1000s.
