Hi,

Very nice Al. I didn't even get one shot, I was no where near totality. Where were you?
I would like to apologize to anyone I have not yet offended. Please be patient and I will get to you shortly.

Here's a little collage of mine. We were around 94% totality.

You guys need to reduce the size of the image. Neither one is viewable on my screen except for a small part at a time. They should be 1000 pixels maximum in either direction.

Done.

Thank you Hammster. Very nice shots. I can't get a bigger screen. I have the largest screen Chromebook made, 15 inch. I do have a 17 inch Windows machine but it is way too painful to go back to Windows. It is like a time machine to 1995. :o

Hi SeilerBird,

I was just north of North Platte, Neb., located in Stapleton. There was a golf course that let you set up for a modest fee (my opinion) right on the center line. I stayed the night there before the eclipse, which helped avoid traffic.

Is my photo too large? I sized it down but looks large to me when I review it after post. The composite photo views near perfect to me but I am on a Mac.

I'll post one of the diamond ring. Let me know if it is too large. Thanks for your comments.

Nice photos Hammster!

Yes, that size works much better.  Love the diamond ring effect.  Great shot!

Thanks for the excellent photo... I was just south of McMinnville OR at the Great Goat Eclipse party- 3 nights camping, banquet, country breakfast, lunch buffets, great people... AND at the 100% point.
BUT, your photos are better than mine!

Hi dcb,

After the eclipse, I headed out to Oregon to visit my sister, BIL and nephews for two weeks. It was pretty smokey there, especially the second week there. They have some nice walking trails there in Oregon. I was on the road for a month.
