The Best Solar Eclipse Photo You'll See Today

This has got to be one of the most beautiful photo of a solar eclipse I've ever seen (and the relatively small pic on Neatorama really didn't do it justice). Head on over to APOD to see the big pic:

For a moment on August 1st, the daytime sky grew dark along the path of a total solar eclipse. While watching the geocentric celestial event from Mongolia, photographer Miloslav Druckmuller recorded multiple images with two separate cameras as the Moon blocked the bright solar disk and darkened the sky. [...] the composite presents a range in brightness beyond what the eye could see during the eclipse.

I believe the caption is a bit iffy...this is an HDR image which is one camera with multiple exposures of varying f-stops in order to properly expose different parts of an image. HOLY CRAP the results are stunning!
