Even though the eclipse was not what I expected I wasn't that disappointed for after all, its about the journey, not the destination. And too, you meet the nicest people on the road. I mentioned the lady who showed me the pictures she got simple by holding the "Eclipse Viewing Shield" in front of her camera. Well she sent me the pictures and here they are. Quite spectacular I say. These are hand held and straight out of the camera.
Thank you to Guay Markham for sharing her amazing photos.
