This morning we watched the solar eclipse at a friend’s house. We were at 99.8% totality, so it did not get completely dark, but it was amazing how dark it got and how cool it got. The temperature dropped about 20 degrees during the darkest part of the eclipse. I didn’t have a solar filter for my camera so I hadn’t planned on taking any photos. But our friend Mike had welders glass so we taped some to my camera lens and I was able to get some shots. These are not very remarkable but I was just “shooting from the hip” as far as exposure goes. I assembled them in the order they were taken in Photoshop.
I tried to take photos from the reflection from someone’s sunglasses and that didn’t work too well. And yes, they were wearing solar lenses under their sunglasses. :-).
All in all, it was a fun event and very exciting to see the eclipse.
