The Eclipse

Leslie, Mom, and I had the greatest fun watching the eclipse the other night. (Actually, I watched it and ran inside every few minutes excitedly calling them out to see the latest developments.) I enjoyed so much taking pictures throughout most of the second half. Unfortunately, for awhile, I couldn't figure out exactly what setting to put my camera (a Nikon D40) on to get a good picture. Several hours, and 75 pictures later, this is what I had....

I took about 30 pictures that all turned out like this, while I was trying to figure out how to get a good picture. You can see a little bit of the red here.

Finally figuring out how to work my camera. :D

It was clear most of the time, but towards the end a few thin clouds came along. I think they added quite a bit to the pictures!

Looks like some sort of nebula type formation!

The heavens declare the glory of God, and the firmament showeth His handiwork!

Great pictures! Did you know that I am marrying myself a wonderful little photographer?

Well, I know that you're marrying a little girl who likes to take pictures. I'll have to work on the "wonderful photographer" part, though. :D

Love you!

It's funny. When the Eclipse was about to appear, Mom tried to wake me up to see it. I was so drugged, though, that I barely remember anything that she said!! Now I wish that I would have gotten up.
At least I get to see the pictures!!

Sha-sha darling, maybe you should have put "drugged" in quotation marks. :D

Wish you would have gotten up!
