Chile
When you have a total solar eclipse occurring in the second driest spot on Earth (the first being Antarctica of course), it makes for a beautiful sight. The biggest reason I wanted to see this eclipse was because it was occurring near sunset, allowing me to get a landscape picture of it low to the horizon. I spent months beforehand selecting two spots to photograph the eclipse, but the evening before I came across this view while driving by and decided that I'd set up at this location instead. During the next morning, I set up 7 hours beforehand to ensure the shot was exactly what I had wanted (and that no one else would take my spot). In the minutes before the eclipse, the birds went out to sea, the temperature got much colder, and the light had a weird ominous feeling. Once totality occurred it was one of the most amazing things you've ever seen.

We trekked through the Southern Patagonian Ice Field in Chile; a land full of mountains, glaciers, and icebergs. One of those glaciers was Grey Glacier, which broke off this beautiful deep blue iceberg that was drifting in the water. This iceberg, among the others that have broken off, will slowly melt away into the ocean and contribute to sea level rise and alter worldwide weather patterns in the years to come. With global temperatures at record highs, this glacier field has been losing about 20 billion tons of ice each year.

The whole day was foggy, snowing, and with low visibility. As I was leaving the area I happened to turn around and see the clouds clearing just enough for this picture. The clouds were so thick beforehand that I had no idea this huge mountain was hiding behind the clouds.
