Reflecting On The Eclipse..

OK, here's the first of a few I'll post...

This is actually a reflection in a puddle of water in my driveway! This is a couple minutes after the 22 seconds of totality we had here. I feel lucky to have been able to experience it at all, as we had non-stop thunderstorms from about 7:30 AM to slightly after 11:30. It cleared up, but there were a few random clouds floating in and out. And wouldn't you know it.... JUST as we went into our 22 seconds of totality, a freakin' cloud rolled over the sun/moon. We did get to see the "diamond ring" although I didn't get a photo of it. I didn't have the proper filter for my EOS6D, and I sure didn't want to take a chance on burning out the sensor! I really like the way this one turned out, though.

It was an amazing experience, nonetheless. Trying to manage 2 cameras, a drone, and an Ipad doing a time-lapse was interesting. But I still managed to stop and just enjoy the event - and it was awesome!

I'll have a few stills from the drone, as well as doing some video editing, to post on YouTube. I'll post a link once it's up.

Nice idea in the water. It's better than capture on a hand like I saw on web.
