My Imperial Eclipse Experience
I traveled to Imperial, Missouri to witness the eclipse, and stayed at a friend’s family farm along the Mississippi River. It’s a quiet little place–except for the passing trains.
I spent the first several days scouting a site to photograph and witness my first solar eclipse totality, and settled on a spot along the river. In the end I captured a few shots, and I look forward to the next eclipse opportunity. (I may have caught the eclipse chasing bug.) Next time I hope to get some shots of totality through a telescope.
Hope you enjoy these shots of the place and the event. In the landscape shot with the eclipse I have enlarged the sun, somewhat, but I think to a respectful level. ( I knew some would wonder and others would ask.) Each shot of the stages of the eclipse is an actual photo. You’ll see a little cloud cover in one. We really lucked out in terms of the weather.
Many thanks to my host. This was a spectacular place to witness the eclipse. I have many more shots of the farm, which I’ll share in a later post. Right now, copies of the stages of the eclipse photo are available as an unframed or framed print. Click here to purchase a print.
