All the research I did leading up to the eclipse mentioned a few key elements to try and capture while photographing totality.  Obviously the corona, but also the diamond ring, solar prominences  and Bailey’s beads.  It’s difficult to say if I captured Bailey’s beads, but I think I have the other three, with the diamond in a previous image.  Although cliche, I’m hoping to assemble a panorama of the entire eclipse one of these days.


A Strange Twilight


The darkness of totality.  Disclaimer:  because my Sony RX100 blew out the sun, which blotted out the moon, I placed a black disc in it’s place to simulate the eclipse.  What I hope to convey is how dark it got during the time of totality.  The rest of the image is un-retouched.
