Weekly Kodachrome - Mostly Eclipse of the Sun

Pin It

Last night I was privy to an event that only a slim corridor of the United States was in the right place for.

A mostly eclipse.

I wish now that I’d have had my powerful zoom lens, filters, and all of the other stuff that makes photography a little bit easier.

Since I hadn’t been privy to an eclipse since I was just a kid, I was impressed. I was a bit disappointed in the fact that I didn’t wind up with powers of some type like in that show, Heroes. However, I am glad that my face didn’t melt off like the Nazis’ heads did in Raiders of the Lost Ark.

I guess you could say that it was a mostly win-win situation.

By the way, remember that you only have until midnight on Tuesday to enter (and win) the current contest to win photos like these or these.

Great capture -- I didn't even know about the eclipse until after the fact. Geez.

Yours is the only good photo I have seen. You captured it for me, so I didn't go out and melt my retina's.

Thank you

That photograph turned out really well.

I remember there being a solar eclipse when I was in high school, and a teacher told us that we wouldn't have another chance to see one until WAY in the FUTURE in 2012. Weird. The future is now.
