34 - In The Sky With Diamonds

34 - In The Sky With Diamonds

Week 34 - Monday 8/21 to Sunday 8/27

After waiting for, well, all of my life, we joined the migration up the Left Coast to watch the 2017 Total Eclipse Event in Oregon. Our good friends who live near Portland were kind enough to let us use their house as a base of operations but any attempt to photograph a rare event often brings the “Man plans and the Gods laugh” saying to mind. I’m happy to say, I got the last laugh this time. Beautiful weather. Good spot to shoot. No mechanical hiccups. It was an awesome day. Even juggling two cameras and being a couple of seconds late for the “Diamond Ring” at the end of the 97 seconds of totality ended well with this HUGE “diamond”. Check “Shoot Total Eclipse” off of the Bucket List.
