Patagonia Solar Eclipse

By: Janne Pyykko


El Calafate, Patagonia, Argentina

2010 July 11


From the photographer: "Total solar eclipse 11-July-2010 in El Calafate, Patagonia, Argentina, viewed from a hill 400 meters above Lago Argentino. This eclipse was not easy-to-catch, because the total phase appeared only 1-degree above the horizon and above the usually-cloudy Andes. To increase my possibilities I hiked to a hill 400 meters above the lake Lago Argentino. With luck in weather I caught the phenomenon just over the mountains. I put myself into the photo to get a human touch." - Janne Pyykko
