Well, if you’re expecting photos of the sun with the shadow of the moon in front of it, I’m sorry to disappoint you. I figured every other photographer in the world would be taking that photo, so I zigged when they zagged.
We were really fortunate that our Platte River Prairies were right smack in the middle of the path of totality for this year’s solar eclipse, and despite some high clouds here and there, we ended up with a very nice clear view of the eclipse. We hosted a viewing event for about 150 of our good friends, and it was a truly magical experience. I don’t really have a lot to say about the science of the eclipse (I was mostly trying to enjoy the experience, not analyze it) but thought I’d share a few photos of what the experience was like on the ground.
