WPC: rare

This week’s topic for the weekly photo challenge by “The Daily Post” is “rare”.

This tiny thing shaped like a cut-off fingernail is the biggest thing in the solar system: the sun itself.

I picked an image taken during a (partial) solar eclipse. I wrote a bit more about this event and the circumstances in a past post. You can also find some further images in that other post. Have a look!

Solar eclipses take part every few years, but they are visible only in a small area and this area changes from occurrence to occurrence. So, it’s a very rareย event in every man’s live. And, many people will never seen one.

Take care have a great weekend!

    1. LOL – great idea, Janet ๐Ÿ™‚
      Thank you very much
      but, in fact, that part of my nic really references to the sun. (Spanish: sol)
      the sun makes us living and illuminates everything, so that we can see. And, photography means painting with light. The light comes from the sun and here we are ๐Ÿ™‚

  1. At first I thought, what a strange image of the moon. Lol! I love this photo of the solar eclipse. I’m excited for the solar eclipse to happen on August 21st, 2017! I’ll have my camera ready!

    1. Thanks, Amanda! You also guessed right: the moon is also in the image ๐Ÿ™‚
      Unfortunately, I can’t make it to the 2017 eclipse. So I still hope for the next one
