Micro Blog

Bummed I missed the photo challenge this week, hosted by @douglane. Here’s hoping I’ll catch the next one…

I don’t manage to find myself on micro.blog too often (though that could now change that the Mac app is available).

Here’s my shot of #eclipse2017 during totality.  We drove down to Kinkaid Lake, near Murphysboro, Illinois.  Managed to avoid some of the crowds of nearby Carbondale, while still having 2:38s of totality to enjoy.  It was an unforgettable experience.

400mm on a APS-C camera was just about perfect to photograph the eclipse. Here’s a shot taken without a filter during totality. Amazing experience viewing from Southern IL.

My daughter, after riding the entire 8 miles around the perimeter of Mackinaw Island a couple of weeks ago. She was a total champ during the ride and was ready to keep going after we finished.
