Eclipse Through the Overcast

While many wanted clear skies to view the eclipse, I found that the overcast skies here in Lynn Haven Florida gave me a great opportunity to take a couple pictures without special camera lens or skills… other than trying to hold the camera steady!

Interesting Cloud Formation

I took this photo north of Fulton, MO August 21st at approx. 7:45 pm. A very unique cloud formation. There were storms approaching from the west and this shot was taken looking northwest.

Ring of Fire

This photograph of the august 21st Total Eclipse was taken with a Nikon D7500 DSLR about 50 miles west of Paulina, Oregon at the Deep Creek Campground in the Ochoco National Forest.  I was initially disappointed in the result, but closer inspection of the image on a larger display revealed I had captured a beautiful image of the Solar Prominences!

Interesting Cloud Shadows at Sunrise

I took this picture at sunrise on my way to feed the horses. At first I couldn’t figure out why the clouds were ‘smoking’. Then I realized that it was their shadow showing on the clouds in the foreground.
