Photographing Stunt Biker Danny MacAskill in Front of a Solar Eclipse

One of the many amazing photographs that emerged after the recent total solar eclipse was this epic shot of stunt biker Danny MacAskill soaring down a hill with the moon eclipsing the sun in the background. Many on the Internet immediately called the shot a "fake," but it's far from it.

It took photographer Rutger Pauw quite a bit of planning and a healthy dose of luck to capture the memorable photograph.

A Lucky Photograph of the Solar Eclipse

Beautiful photo compositions generally require a keen eye and a quick shutter finger, but sometimes luck plays a huge role as well. That's what happened today for UK-based photographer Amy Shore, who was photographing the total solar eclipse from her backyard in Leicestershire. A bird flew into Shore's frame as the Moon was passing over the face of the Sun, adding a unique touch to her shot.

Total Solar Eclipse Time-Lapse Captures Shadow Sweeping Across the Land

Last month, there was a total solar eclipse that was visible to people in Australia. Photographer Colin Legg captured the whole thing as three separate time-lapse videos (seen above). The short but beautiful clips show the moon passing in front of the sun, a darkness sweeping across the vast landscape, and the moon's shadow sweeping across the sky!
