Smartie pants. I was too scared to screw with my real camera! Nice work!

Perfection!!

You were more directly in the path...how wonderful this is! I was happy enough to capture what I did, but at the rate I'm uploading past photos, I should have this one up by Christmas!

Nicely done. We had some clouds.

I should have done that when my neighbor leant me her glasses for a few moments- but I got an eclipse shot of a different kind instead (and saw it through my pinhole viewer the rest of the time). Awesome!!

@alophoto How strange I didn't even think about ruining my camera. It is a bridge though so maybe not so sensitive? Appreciate your enthusiasm so much
@summerfield Thanks girlfriend. I thought yours was too
@froggie0628 Thanks bunches. Glad you got to see a bit of it anyway
@darylo Way to kind especially coming from you! thanks
@Weezilou LOL! Thanks Louise. looking forward to seeing yours at Christmas! ;~}
@777margo So nice of you MArgo thansk so much
@lisahans So sorry. That must have been frustrating! Thanks for your kind words
@olivetreeann I hadn't planned on trying but one of our daughters gave me some glasses so I thought why not? Thanks for your nice comment and enthusiasm

Fabulous! I was afraid to try - I knew I'd get to see all the awesome photos on this site!

haha...got my note from Ross that I haven't been posting, so I decided to put it on display with all the rest...fun to see how everyone approached the opportunity on this momentous occasion!
posted August 22nd, 2017  
hey -- that works. Just so much fun that everyone is so into this

Yours is so sharp!! While it was crescent I was shooting with glasses on and then trying to hold another set of glasses in front of my lens. It was very hit and miss! Those glasses are so dark!

fabulous capture, Katy

@linnypinny I hadn't even planned on trying but i'm glad I did. Thanks so much Lin
@Weezilou I really like the one you posted and I'm so grateful I didn't have to wait until Christmas!
@francoise I think I got lucky. It is fabulous to see all the different ways people have caught it.
@m9f9l I got several that weren't quite as sharp so I was really happy to see this one. It was definitely a challenge to get the logistics right.
@bill_fe I appreciate that so much Bill. Thank you

What a spectacular crescent! This is a TOTALLY awesome non-total shot -- my friend experimented a bit to see if that would work. I was scared to try so contented myself with people shots.
posted August 22nd, 2017  
What an awesome FAV.
posted August 22nd, 2017  
Perfect shot! We were told not to do this - don't know why - yours came out beautifully!
posted August 22nd, 2017  
Stunning! What I read about destroying camera sensors was taking direct shots, not with using the glasses. We had cloud cover so didn't even get to see a partial or the cool shadows I saw from some of my friends' pics. I have a friend who was in the total area and the one pic I have seen (hopefully, just so far!) from her is fabulous.

I was barely brave enough to look at the sun with the glasses on. So many warnings about everything. This is a great capture.
posted August 22nd, 2017  
Perfect! I only took a couple photos in totality.
posted August 22nd, 2017  
Wonderful, this shot deserves to be hung on the wall
posted August 23rd, 2017  
What a great capture, Katy. Such a clear shot. I just posted my sad shot of this eclipse. I would do things totally different next time for sure. FAV
posted August 23rd, 2017  
You did so well Katy!! So sharp, clear and ORANGE!!!

@dawnee Thank you so much. So glad you like it!
@mcsiegle Aside from worrying about my eyes I didn't even think I might damage the camera. Thanks so much Mary
@cdonohoue quite an honor coming form you Cathy Thanks so very much
@maggiemae I am glad I forgot to listen to anyone about this . I probably would never have done this if I had. I appreciate your approval MM
@marilyn good to know my ignorance is covered! ;~} Thanks bunches. So sorry you missed it....next one?♥
@tunia So glad you like it. I am so old l figured I had little to lose! ;~}
@merawl So generous of you MER. I envy you that opportunity.
@nicolecampbell You are far too kind in that assessment Nicole. Thanks!
@darsphotos So nice of you Darlene. I didn't think your shot was sad at all. I wish I had thought of it!
@cjphoto Ah, Chris I really appreciate your approval. The orange comes from the high ISO I think

@grammyn Mine was a suggestion on tv, last minute totally. Just glad hubby was home to hold the colander. You are so sweet. Hope you are doing well. Wish I took this photo.

Very nice job! We sat in the screen porch... Dan, me, and Zoey my new puppy. We were in 98% area. It got so dark and quiet.... cicadas stopped buzzing and birds stopped chirping. Dogs started barking. I took video... maybe I will post one.
posted August 28th, 2017  
@espyetta that must've been awesome! I'm going to assume you were at the lake? When I lived in Washington state it was very much the same in 1979. I definitely remember the birds, we didn't have cicadas!
posted August 28th, 2017  
Awesome! I didn't even try to capture it. My cats got very nervous!

@eudora Thanks Diane. I hadn't planned on trying but decided to give it a go at the last minute
