I haven't posted in quite a while, but I thought I'd share my eclipse pictures. We were very fortunate that the clouds didn't completely obscure the show. In fact, they made the show.

Any and all comments appreciated.

Great shots! After looking at all the eclipse photos, then photos like yours and some others with clouds, I think they are so much more dramatic and interesting. These would also print so much nicer than just the black disk with a white ring. Well done!

Thanks! The clouds definitely made the difference. And to think, when the clouds started to move in, everyone around us jumped in their cars and raced north on Georgia Road, hoping to find an unobstructed view. It was like someone had waved the green flag at Talladega! Besides the person who owned the lot we were parked in, we were all alone.

They missed a great show.
