24 hour escape to Silverton, OR for the total solar eclipse! Semi-home-made solar filter, 200mm lens on full frame, tethered, custom settings with exposure brackets, and interval remote triggering proved to be a winning combo! Camera equipment was on auto-pilot (well, 95% of the time), and no distraction at all from the actual viewing experience of this amazing occurrence.
The sky turned from bright sunny blue to deep dark night blue, and in the second image of the sun in total eclipse, a faint planet is visible on the bottom left of the frame. The camera saw a lot more corona details than the naked eye!
Now it makes sense how sea anemone got its name.
Walking through the Richard Serra spiral makes any day a good day.
Twisty trees on the trail in Inverness.
Another good use of half and half… for a photography class assignment!
