The Eclipse in the Eye of a Pond
In light of the myriad (like the myriad bird) of photographers who would be using solar filters on their digitals to immortalize whatever percentage of the sun would be darkened in their own location, I decided to simply find a scene and see what the scape would look like as the light changed. All of this 36 second compression of an event of 3 hours was sun and moon interaction except for clouds that passed over the orb in the final few seconds of the whole work here. This was shot in the DFW Metroplex with a Nikon D800 on manual, f11, 1/60 sec. Since I was too dumb to quickly figure out the intervalometer on the camera, I had to time each minute on my phone and squeeze the button every one of the 180 of the captures. I suppose this turned out as I had hoped.
