In August of 1999 Chris and I took a trip with Wilderness Travel to see a total solar eclipse in Turkey. We flew into Istanbul and then another short flight to Ankara.
A bus took us to the Eclipse viewing site where hundreds of people were gathered in a festival type of environment. Everyone was given special glass to protect our eyes as we looked at the sun.
When the eclipse actually happened, we put the glass in front of our camera lens to take the photo.
