I pulled off the road this morning and took a moment to smell the… hmmm, cows. Yeah, the cows….

It’s coming….

Sorry… I’m not a fan of “Fall” or Autumn if you want to be proper.

It’s the time of year that the days get shorter, the air gets colder, plants die.

Trips to the lake or beach fade away. You start wearing sweaters, jackets and coats.

Everything is “Pumpkin Spice” flavor or scented.

And you know it’s coming…. Winter.

I really don’t like Winter, I’m a warm weather guy who really likes Spring time but loves Summertime.  I love hot weather.  Yeah, yeah, down here in the South it’s humid and it can get really hot and you sweat just walking outside but that’s ok with me.

Winter? Not so ok.

Falling sky….

Everyone had been asking me for weeks if I was going to photograph the eclipse, I replied each time… “nope”.

I love science and love nature and well, this seem like something that was up my alley as they say.  However, I am not  a fan of fads or hyped up events and the media has been nuts on this event for months so I decided I would just stand outside like everyone else and look up for a minute or two then get back to work.

That was the plan anyway, until about two hours before it began. At that point I was thinking to myself, “I’ll just shoot something for myself and not tell anyone” but not having planned this event I did not have the proper filtration for my camera. I dug around in my studio and found a few bits and pieces of stuff that I cobbled together that would allow me to attempt a shot or two without frying the camera.

I’m happy enough with what I got, it’s not the classic eclipse photo but I like doing things different and since it’s only for me, it doesn’t really matter anyway.

I did have enough fun playing around that now I want to get the right filters and start playing around shooting the sun… who knows what I might get, maybe one of those “classic” images.  ;-0
