Marys Peak Meadowedge Trail

Old growth Noble Firs in a bed of clover

Another shot today from the hike we did a month ago on Marys Peak when we headed north for the eclipse. I don’t think I’ve ever hiked through old growth Noble Firs before. The carpet of clover made it extra special.

It’s been a while since I’ve seen these guys.

I missed them when they came through in January so I guess I haven’t seen them in over five years. Time flies…

When I was about 15 I got Huey Lewis’s autograph before he sang the national anthem at an A’s game. Thirty-something years later I saw him for the second time live, at Britt Festival this past Tuesday night.

Eclipse day

eclipse corvallis oregon mercury

Solar eclipse (August 21, 2017) from Corvallis, Oregon during totality (dot to the left and below the eclipse is Mercury)

#OReclipse #Eclipse2017 #eclipse

I thought I was going to be a bit disappointed with the eclipse after all of the hype, but the minute plus during totality was better than expected. Photos don’t really do the actual experience justice.

I had planned to shoot the eclipse @ 500mm on my D500 for an effective length of 750mm. However, my 200-500mm lens decided not to work on either of my cameras on this day so the above photo was shot on my D500 at 120mm (180mm effective length) and then cropped.

The streak in the sky in the second photo is from contrails left by a plane a few minutes before totality.
