No post today, other than to mention that we enjoyed the Great Eclipse of 2017.
Our property is about 15 miles south of the zone of totality — a term I never heard until recently. We wanted the full experience, so we drove north to the Green Door Gourmet, a 350-acre organic farm outside of Nashville that puts on a number of events during the year.
That’s Chareva, her mom, and the girls in the radical-lookin’ shades below. (Chareva’s dad, unfortunately, is still in the hospital after falling recently and breaking his hip.)
The shot below was taken just a few minutes before the total eclipse. Amazing how much light there was, even with the sun mostly obscured.
The picture below was taken right around the time of the total eclipse. My Canon camera does a fine job in low light, brightening things up a bit, so it actually appeared darker outside than the image suggests.
Once again, the camera exaggerated the ring of light around the moon in the photo below, but here it is anyway. To the eye, the ring of light was just barely visible around the edges.
Two minutes of darkness, then it was all over. Quite an experience, though.
