This is one of those truly rare moments. Kind of on the order with being on the bay for the longest day of the year, further elevated by having a clear day, and the weather permitting a Kayak out into the big open for sunset.
I was at the cabin sorting and packing, when I got a text that there would be a solar eclipse this evening, near sunset. When it came time I couldn’t see any difference it was just a nice sunset (and blinding), with some evening clouds. Even after shooting a few frames I couldn’t tell, as the display on my camera is a little small. As the sun approached the horizon I thought I could see a bite out of it, which could easily have been a cloud top. I just kept shooting.
Once I was able to up-load the images to my netbook, eureka I had actually been photographing the eclipse. Cool. These are some selected frames, a little repetitive as its the same sunset, but you can see the eclipse. Enjoy.
