Photographer Elias Chasiotis had spent the last days of 2019 in Qatar where he experienced something utterly spectacular. During one of the days he was there, a solar eclipse was underway as the Sun began rising above the horizon, making it look like a devil rising from the waters. Chasiotis was lucky enough to capture it all!
The photos were taken in the coastal city of Al Wakrah, Qatar, on the morning of December 26, 2019. At that moment, an annular eclipse was in progress.
Chasiotis intentionally chose a place where he could get the perfect view of the eclipsed sun. He says that the weather wasn’t that good in the beginning. Soon enough, he was able to capture the perfect shots.
To Chasiotis, that was the most stunning sunrise he had ever see. Now, he looks forward to the next annular eclipse in June 2020. He believes eclipses are one of the most fascinating sights that one can see in their life. And he sure is right!
