“Partial Annular Eclipse Series”
Tonight in the northern hemisphere there was a solar eclipse. The annular eclipse is when the new moon crosses the path of the sun and creates what looks like a ring when seen at full eclipse. Where I live we were only able to see a partial (57%) eclipse. This is a series of six photos from eclipse start to sunset.
“A Day’s End”
Clouds are a favorite subject of mine. A reason that I like clouds is that there are never two clouds that are alike. With that, the sky is constantly looking different even if you shoot from the exact same spot every day. Sure there are gray, gloomy days with little definition, but even on those days the clouds are different than any other day before or after that time.
My favorite time is like the one in this photo today. The lighting, layers of the clouds and colors from vibrant yellow to purple really made this image work! Best of all, this was taken from my driveway, during a break from mowing my lawn—just after a little rain and hail storm.
Today I visited a nature preserve that is on my way home. It is an old tamarack forest that is surrounded by a wetland. At one time, this used to be fenced off and in the wetland are the remnants of an old fence that is no more.
