Here's my humble offering. This was at maximum eclipse for Modesto, CA at 10:15 AM Pacific time. I have no eclipse glasses so I used some Pop Tart foil.

Hi there from Canary Islands! Here is my attempt ;-).

A distant and reflexive silhoutte against the sunset... and the enjoyment of the peaceful arrival of the awaited moment...

For solar minimum, and after months of quiet activity, the sun really came to the eclipse party too. A large and beautiful sunspot group had appeared a few days earlier and rotated into the middle of the Sun on eclipse day. An hour and a half after totality, when my image capture sequence of the partial phases completed, I was able to have a first look at the images I captured. My jaw dropped when I saw this on the back of the camera. I was thrilled to have nailed most of the factors under my control, but I had not dreamed that the Sun would provide this level of activity at this point in the solar cycle.

Photo #5 looks artificial and #6 and #10 look like compositions of two photos at different focal lengths, because the eclipsed sun was not near the horizon at the places of capture. I think this post should be placed in 'Found images' section.

Tetons Eclipse from Table Mountain

Postby philhart » Wed Aug 23, 2017 5:18 pm

Image

Last Friday I hiked up Table Mountain on the west side of the Teton Range to plant a camera with a timer in the hope of capturing the eclipse above the iconic Grand Teton and its companions. The hike is 6 miles each way and 4000+ feet elevation gain, with the summit over 11,000 ft - hard work for me at least!

While returning up the Table Mountain trail again yesterday (the day after eclipse), it was great to meet people who'd been camped out on the mountain and enjoyed the eclipse from the summit with 200 others! For a few hours on that return trip, I thought my work had been in vain as some day hikers I met later had discovered my camera and found it fallen over. My heart sank, but when I got to the summit I discovered the camera had only fallen over in the last 24 hours of its stay on the mountain, and not during the three days prior to the eclipse! This image is the result and just one in a sequence of 2000 captured in the few minutes around totality.
