Solar Eclipse 2017 images - before

Anticipating how to adventure with the solar eclipse of 2017-08-21, I walked about on 8-17 at the same timeframe: 12-3PM. Some of these photos are of sufficiient interest, click to enlarge.

 

  1. 1 sun straight up. Slightly east of being aligned with boardwalk to the Gulf Sun is directly above head, slightly east of being aligned with the boardwalk to the Gulf.
  2. Rest area by parking lot Rest area by parking lot and entry to side walk south.
  3. Looking north at rest room and space along fence to WaterSound Looking north at rest room and space along fence to WaterSound. Note glaring washed-out sun-baked whites. HDR needed. Learn more about exposure. I think underexposing saves more detail (or it did in film).
  4. Looking west at south end of parking lot and start to sidewalk Looking west at south end of parking lot and start to sidewalk. Remember to walk slower and move camera more slowly to preserve focus and detail.
  5. Bike rack and entry sign Bike rack and entry sign
  6. Sidewalk Sidewalk
  7. Closeup of leaf shadow patterns that might project crescents of eclipsed sunlight Closeup of leaf shadow patterns that might project crescents of eclipsed sunlight
  8. Another loseup of leaf shadow patterns that might project crescents of eclipsed sunlight Another closeup of leaf shadow patterns that might project crescents of eclipsed sunlight. These shadows aren't sharp. Will the crescents during eclipse be sharp?
  9. Yet another closeup of leaf shadow patterns that might project crescents of eclipsed sunlight Yet another closeup of leaf shadow patterns that might project crescents of eclipsed sunligh. This might be of interest as sidewalk darkens and crescents appear in leaf light play.
  10. Next segment of sidewalk, sunny Next segment of sidewalk, sunny
  11. Rounding curve, light and shadow Rounding curve, light and shadow
  12. Same Same. Might need vertical shot so get nearby closeup, not so much repetitive foliage.
  13. Straightaway to ramp Straightaway to ramp. Lori territory?
  14. palmettos Palmettos. See also 52. Palmettos again.
  15. Ramp up to boardwalk Ramp up to boardwalk

  38. Dunes looking NE from boardwalk end Dunes looking NE from boardwalk end
  39. Reef line centered in Gulf waters Reef line centered in Gulf waters
  40. Boardwalk ramp to beach shadow on the sand Boardwalk ramp to beach, shadow on the sand. Will this make eclipse crescent long shadows?
  41. Ramp stairs, walkway, shadow of boards on sand Ramp stairs, walkway, shadow of boards on sand
  42. Looking east along shore Looking east along shore
  43. Looking N from ramp end Looking N from ramp end
  44. My shadow, head My shadow, head

  46. N from ramp end, vertical N from ramp end. Note sun is slightly east, throwing shadows slightly west on boardwalk
  47. Another view NE Another view NE
  48. Looking east from mid-boardwalk with large cloud, whipped top, over WaterSound Looking east from mid-boardwalk with large cloud, whipped top, over WaterSound
  49. Mid boardwalk, looking N Mid boardwalk, looking N. Here's where video stopped, so lost the rest of the walk to the end back by the sidewalk. It was 30 minutes long
  50. On ramp up from sidewalk, looking south, video 2 On ramp up from sidewalk, looking south, video 2. Photo I didn't get is the leaf shadows on the railing, also partly looking down at palmettos and other leaves with their shadows on the ground. Probably won't know until the time if this is a phenomenon. Remember to look. (I didn't remember on 8-21.) Compare with 52. Palmettos again.
  51. Straight up, partial sun Straight up, partial sun
  52. Palmettos again Palmettos again. Compare with 14. Palmettos
  53. Tree shadows on sidewalk Tree shadows on sidewalk
  54. More tree shadows on sidewalk More tree shadows on sidewalk
  55. Beauty berries to west of ramp up from sidewalk Beauty berries to west of ramp up from sidewalk
  56. Even more shadows on sidewalk Even more shadows on sidewalk. Starting to wonder which are the best shadows and what is the best distance for a camera to record video. {This is the area where I did photograph the crescents and hear the crickets song pause during part of the partial eclipse.)
  57. Sun in tree tops Sun in tree tops. Instead of shadows on ground, any interest straight on? Or up, that is.
  58. In car in parking lot looking west. Any interest in light on forest? In car in parking lot pointed at sidewalk, looking west. Any interest in light on forest?
