    Total Solar Eclipse - August 21, 2017

    What an amazing experience! I went to Tellico Plains, TN, at the Cherohala Skyway Visitor Center, near the TN/NC border. I spent Sunday night in the area, and I got to the parking field around 5:30am, before they had even opened. Watched sunrise, hung out with some cool folks, and the eclipse was spectacular! It was a hot day, no clouds in the area, but as the eclipse progressed, you could feel the temperature come down some. As it reached totality, it got dark and calm. I was shooting pictures without looking at the camera, changing settings and shooting while looking at the incredible sight in the sky. It was absolutely worth driving out here for it.

    Dude! How awesome was that! I was over in Paducah KY for it...an incredible phenomenon for sure. What a crazy sight, especially to be able to photograph solar flares.
    GREAT shots, mine have these wierd halos on them for some reason
