Solar Eclipse

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA
Solar eclipse as seen in Sioux City, Iowa,on August 21, 2017. Photos were taken with an Olympus OM-D E-M1 Mark II camera with a 300mm lens and 1.4 teleconverter. A special solar filter was used to make the exposure possible and protect the camera sensor.

Like many people, I photographed the solar eclipse on August 21, 2017. Originally I wanted to travel south to shoot the total eclipse, but realized I would not be able to shoot it and drive back to Sioux City in time for a work commitment. So I photographed the eclipse in Sioux City from the grounds of the Lewis and Clark Interpretive Center.

A larger set of my eclipse photos are currently on display at the Sioux City Lewis and Clark Interpretive Center and Betty Strong Encounter Center.
