The Great Eclipse of August 2017 was 75% eclipsed where I live in the San Francisco Bay Area.

I wasn’t able to travel to see Totality so photographed the Eclipse from my backyard.

I made an image every 10 minutes from just before it began until the very end. The images are unguided. In between images I moved my lens away from the sun so the sun wouldn’t be shining down my lens and possibly damage my sensor even though I had a genuine Solar Filter mounted to the lens.

This composite showing some of the most pronounced phases of the phenomenon is comprised of 7 frames. The left side is first contact, the middle peak eclipsed, and the last image on the right last contact or pretty close to it.

I’ve got my mind set on seeing the Solar Eclipse in 2024 in Totality, and will be making plans to view that early as that probably will be the last chance I get to see it live.

Strobist- SB910 @ 1/4 pwr camera left low-ish bounced off ceiling; triggered via Commander Mode in camera.  ( After composing and developing this image in 2014 it’s been marinating on my back up drive) and published now.  Marinating an image can be a good thing! I hated this image back then, but like it now. 🙂 Time is a wonderful thing to perception, and feelings.  There’s a great lesson here to those who are listening and seeing. 🙂
