Wow. What just happened? For 2 minutes and 30 seconds yesterday, our lives as we know it changed. I remember hearing about this eclipse a few years back but wrote it off as a busy time here in the Tetons that may be pandemonium like. Years turned into months, months into days and before we knew it, the Great American Eclipse was upon us. As one of the most anticipated events in Jackson Hole history, people predicted extremely large spikes in population density for Teton County. Numbers from 40,000 to 100,000 additional visitors over the weekend were floated around. People prepared like they’ve never prepared before. Instead, locals and visitors alike were treated to a long weekend that had relatively no excess traffic, full grocery stores and the opportunity to witness a historical celestial phenomenon in a special place, Jackson Hole. I think you could have polled anyone in Teton County on Monday and they would’ve agreed on one thing: IT WAS WORTH THE WAIT!
A special event occured atop of Corbet’s Couloir during the eclipse. Check it out here:
Enjoy our photo recap below from photographers of all skill levels!
It’s been over 3 hours since the solar eclipse passed over #JacksonHole and I’m still beaming. That was truly like nothing I’ve ever seen before! I took a risk for this photo, the full #totality lasted about 100 seconds which wasn’t much time. This photo here is an in-camera double exposure of the #solarEclipse, 2 pictures exposed onto one frame in camera, no photoshop, all taken on a single RAW file. I first shot the eclipse and then turned my camera to @alexmason #highlining. There was a lot to mess up on my side, 2 different exposures, eclipse placement, 4 ProFoto strobes, timing Alex and having very little time to pull it off! The margin for error was slim and I was for sure nervous, I shot as many as I could before the moment passed. I’m grateful that it all worked out! Huge thank you to @redbull for believing in me to get the shot, Alex for walking the line, @andylewisglobal for all the laughs/expertise/rigging, @andybardon for being all around rad, @skydick for producing such a creative shoot, @jacksonhole for making the locations reality, my lovely wife @danahrichardson and the entire film crew and team!

Just, wow. @jscottpage and I had the unique opportunity to fly with @flyjacksonhole over the Tetons during the eclipse. I can easily say this was one of the most incredible opportunities I’ve ever had as a photographer. Thanks to much to our pilot Jeff for getting us the perfect angle at just the right time. #mgkra #orijinmedia

Complete silence – the birds, marmots & pika all stopped chirping and squeaking at once. The barometric pressure dropped and you felt like you could float away. Sunsets on both horizons. Cold darkness in the middle of the day. My goodness, that was one of the best moments of my life. I have never felt that close to the universe. Thank you for taking this photo @dirkcollins . My mouth was wide open, jaw on the floor. Maybe I can get a shot next time when I chase down the next eclipse in 2019!

Total eclipse at the @rlazysranch corral. The night birds were chirping, coyotes began howling, and our three miniature donkeys layed down for a good night’s sleep, only to be woken a few minutes later. . . #wyoming #jacksonhole #tetonvillage #rlazysranch #eclipse #eclipse2017 #greatamericaneclipse #visitwyoming #mthrworld #bbcearth #earthcapture

Day turns into Night. Seeing our first solar eclipse in totality was an extraordinary visual experience. We were so fortunate to view the Eclipse from the top of @grandtargheeresort . The epic view of the Tetons with the eclipse above, all while watching the shadow of the moon as it traveled across the valley from the west. The low midday clouds suddenly turned the color of sunset peach, day turned to night, and a cold evening chill enveloped us. It was as if our entire concept of time had become compressed, “real time” felt like hyper time lapse . Stay tuned…as I will be posting a 360 video which captures this magic in its entirety, along with a big picture. #eclipse #tetontotality #grandtargheeresort #grandtarghee #totaleclipse #moonshadow #darknessatnoon
