Great American Eclipse 2017

Hi all, I spent last week chasing the eclipse down to Nebraska. Here are some of the highlights.

Good morning Sunshine! Can’t wait for your show today!

This is what the sky looked like just before the eclipse began. Uh oh…

But thankfully, there were enough breaks in the clouds to get some good partial shots.

Unfortunately, it clouded over completely just before totality.

But we did see some amazing 360-degree sunset colors all around us.

I also really like this 15x time lapse of the surrounding area coming out of the shadow after totality. Wait for it…

Then, right after totality, the clouds cleared up almost completely. I think the sudden temperature drop cleared much of the condensation in the air, and we ended up with a 180-degree sunbow arc!

Then it was perfectly clear skies for the rest of the partial eclipse.


New Photo Portfolio

I’ve switched out of the expensive Photomerchant hosting service, and will now be displaying my photography portfolio on a secondary Posterous account.  Click the link below, or the permanent link in the menu bar on the left.

You can follow that space to be alerted to new photos.  If you see any photos you particularly like, I’d be happy to make you a print, panorama, or canvas.

Call it a midlife crisis if you will, but at about 1:48pm on Thursday February 10th, 2011, I had an epiphany: I don’t want to sit behind a desk.  So in my impulsive American spirit, I went out and got myself a website, and I’m now in the process of customizing my new online storefront at…

High Dynamic Range Photos

So I’m going to start off this blog by posting some of my favorite photos. Specifically, those that I’ve edited using a process called High Dynamic Range (HDR) photography.  HDR is a process by which multiple bracketed exposures are combined to create a single image, incorporating the contrasts from each individual image.  I use Photomatix Pro 4.0 to produce my HDR images.

These photos were taken mostly in London and California, with a few other places thrown in as well.
