I really enjoyed that - both the photograph and the accompanying article. It's nice to see something that gives a feeling of time moving slowly in today's world. Something very peaceful in it. Thank you for sharing.
Google for solargraphy to see more examples from past years.
It's truly a unique view that you couldn't get by any other means. The icing on the cake is that it also happens to be a very effective image.
I've seen a lot of those type images and they are usually pretty rough. This one really came out quite well.
