This morning I had the chance to grab a few shots of today’s solar eclipse, which was the longest to occur in the twenty-first century and won’t be surpassed in duration for another 123 years. Although it wasn’t a total eclipse when viewed from Taiwan, I consider myself very lucky to have had a chance to witness it.
