My belated photo of the solar eclipse

It wouldn’t be “me” if I posted everything in a timely manner.

On August 21, a total solar eclipse crossed the United States. In my part of NE Ohio, I think we only had 80% – which is still better than nothing haha. But of course, in typical NE Ohio fashion, it’s cloudy and crummy whenever there’s supposed to be something of interest happening in the sky… and it was no different that Monday afternoon.

I took this with my trusty point-and-shoot… and, GASP… I didn’t use a solar filter or anything to protect my lens! And I took glances at the eclipse while wearing my dad’s welder glasses. Sometimes I’m a rebel.

Do you see that little crescent? That’s the eclipse! So I have my own photographic proof of it. 🙂

Summer Evening Skies (photo)


Summer’s dying down. Summer’s my least favorite season (I hate the heat SO MUCH!), so I’m very happy to see it go. But I will miss being able to sit outside in the evenings with my mug of coffee and watching the sun set, with the clouds changing color. This was taken September 6.

Taken with my Nikon Coolpix s9600.
