We witnessed a rare event in Charleston yesterday,
 a total solar eclipse. I did a photo shoot for Belmond
 with the purpose of photographing their iconic fountain and the total eclipse. Unfortunately, we had cloud cover all day,
which was heavy at times. But the sun was bright enough
 to shine through the veil of clouds as day turned into night.
It was amazing to experience!
