I thought the eclipse was last night, so I was quite surprised when my uncle knocked on the door and called that the eclipse was going and asked me to bring my camera. It was already eclipsed, so I got some snaps of it from the eclipsed stage and coming out of it. The interesting thing about this is that hubby and I caught a lunar eclipse a couple of years ago – I think it was actually January of 2014 – and I got photos of it going into the eclipse but then my camera battery died (and our truck battery died, too! It was a fun night!) SO this completes my eclipse collection.
Anyway, here’s the 19 shots I got: (if you click the slideshow you can watch it un-eclipse!)
Though I wish I had a larger zoom lens, I am pretty happy with these, and still happy with my Nikon after all these years. The poor thing has been bumped, banged, dropped, knocked off of stuff – the standard lens that came with it sticks from my poor handling of it – and yet it keeps going.
I’m still chugging along at my writing. i got chapter one done and then realized I had not mentioned a key plot element at all, which really would be Katelina’s main concern, so some rewriting is in order. Oh well, it gives me a framework to work with.
Not much else, so I’m signing off. Have a good one!
So glad you shared these photos! Hubby and I got up to watch the eclipse. We almost got the kiddo up to watch, but there was a lot of cloud cover.
I’ve heard that from a lot of people. It’s weird that we didn’t!
Great photos! I missed it last night due to cloud cover.
That’s too bad! I usually miss things because of clouds too!
Hey Jo, Do you mind if I share your eclipse link with my kiddo’s science class? His teacher missed the eclipse and these came out GREAT!
Not at all 😀
