Solar Eclipse 2017 - Scott Nelson Photography

Eclipse 2017 :: Astro-Photography

Monday, August 21, 2017

I didn't take the day off to drive to totality. I didn't rent any fancy equipment and these certainly won't be the best images you see from the event. I stood outside with some co-workers then went back about my day. I wanted to enjoy the event without having to worry about the pictures. I didn't think it would all that exciting, but once everything started happening, it was an eerie feeling and an odd sight. It really helped to define the fact that we are absolutely tiny in terms of the cosmos. There is so much out there left to explore and to learn.

Whether you believe it all happened by chance or, like me, believe in a creator; I hope that you were able experience it and that you can understand the magnitude and rarity of what happened.
