Default Solar eclipse

Yesterday I made some pictures, about 5 miles north from Redding.

Some years ago,

We had a solar eclipse that sent us into twilight, and these photos remind me of how I felt as the birds started to sing like the morning chorus.

The most over whelming feeling of not being in control of anything came over me and made a lasting impression...What really matters, what we think really matters, what’s real and what’s not...is life all an illusion...


Regards
M. Gregg

Thank you!
Unfortunately I had to cover the lens by protective glasses, so it was shaking a bit. I did not have any sticky tape unfortunately...

Great pictures,

Its a real pain to get anything without a tripod and filters..

I have projected in the past onto paper via a magnifying glass when I had no smoked glass to watch it..

Regards

Wow. If it was not for the time stamp, I would grab one for my desktop. Very nice.

The only one I saw was about 45 years ago. Pinhole and paper, so no color, no corona. Nothing like you were able to capture.
