Craig Kienast, of Images Photography in Clear Lake, took photos of the solar eclipse Aug. 21 while on a trip with wife his Brenda and other family members.

“Witnessing a total eclipse definitely takes your breath away," Kienast said. "I love my photo art, but it will never equal the real spectacle.”

He enhances his work using Photoshop, adding foreground to provide a foundation and giving a sense of space.
