I visited Sumter, South Carolina in August 2017, to witness a total solar eclipse, and was fortunate to record the “diamond ring” effect, soon after totality. These are a few of the pictures from the sequence I recorded. With additional exposure, one can also see much more of the sun's corona at totality.
