Danny MacAskill returned to his home on the Isle of Skye today for the Solar Eclipse to take what will undoubtedly be one of the most memorable photographs of 2015.

The photograph, which sees Danny appear in mid-air in front of the eclipse, was created by friend and photographer Rutger Pauw who came up with the idea after seeing that one of the best views would be on the rider’s home soil, where 98% of the sun was at one point obscured.

The Isle of Skye, the location of Danny’s last viral video ‘The Ridge’, provided the team with the ideal opportunity and the Scot’s intimate knowledge of the Island meant Pauw could take the shot depute needing to film from over 300m away across a valley.
