I have teamed up with some amazing artists to continue our monthly blog circle for 2017. We're taking 5 minutes in our month to photograph one thing/place/activity and share what we can capture in just those 5 minutes. For August I chose to do 5 minutes of...you guessed it. The great solar eclipse of 2017. We live right in the line of totality. So my parents had a party down on their dock and we had the best seat in the house for this once in a lifetime event. As luck would have it, we had total cloud cover during totality. But, we had a great time and we were all together. I didn't have the right equipment to capture the eclipse itself, so I was more focused on the story happening around me. These are the images that I captured right around (and during) totality. Even if we weren't able to see the whole thing, it was still a great experience.
Up next is the always incredible Melissa Hines. Be sure to follow the circle around. You won't want to miss this.
