Temple of the 4th dimension

Time lapse image sequence of the solar eclipse over ruins of Fort Churchill in the Nevada desert. All the images used were taken from the camera (with an intervalometer) in a fixed composition without any movement of the camera or tampering of the suns position relative the landscape. The eclipse related sun images were captured with a solar filter. They were then stacked together and blended in photoshop to create a single image as shown here. Just after the maximum eclipse, clouds moved in and obscured the view of the sun for the second half. But it ended up resulting in a nice sunset that I was able to incorporate in the final set of exposures after removing the solar filter.
