MIL­LIONS OF PEO­PLE gath­ered to gaze at the rare to­tal so­lar eclipse that hap­pened across the United States last month. The full so­lar eclipse is the first one in nearly four decades and as a once- in- a- life­time photo op­por­tu­nity for many, it comes as no sur­prise so many en­thu­si­ast and pro­fes­sional pho­tog­ra­phers tried to cap­ture the ce­les­tial event in their own spe­cial way.

Whilst some pho­tog­ra­phers filled the frame dur­ing the min­utes when the moon eclipsed the sun, others per­formed feats to make their pho­to­graphs even more spec­tac­u­lar. Red Bull's pro­fes­sional pho­tog­ra­phers – in their usual dare­devil form – cap­tured a num­ber of high­a­drenaline events dur­ing the eclipse, from cliff- div­ing to slack­lin­ing hun­dreds of me­tres above a ravine! What did you get up to? We’d love to see your pic­tures on our Face­book page!
