We don’t get to witness a solar eclipse very frequently, so when one is scheduled to happen and you want to photograph it, you have to be willing to put in the footwork to make it happen. For some firsthand experience on the matter, check out this quick video from RedBull. The behind the scenes action takes you on location to the Isle of Skye (Scotland), as photographer Rutger Pauw does some location scouting for a solar eclipse photoshoot with professional athlete, Danny MacAskill.
Gotta love hiking through the mountainous damp back country while lugging around a beastly 800mm lens! Take a look:
Despite the issues Pauw ran into finding the perfect spot, unpredictably disheartening weather conditions, and a very short window of opportunity to actually get the shot, the photographer managed to capture the photo he was hoping to get.
