Equipment Details:

Sony a7s camera plus Sony Zeiss 24-70 f4 lens set at 50mm
Really Right Stuff tripod

Post-processing Details:

Processed in Lightroom Classic and PhotoShop. Merged in Photoshop 20 images of the eclipse with one foreground shot.

Image Details:

This photo was taken at Mono Lake Park which is adjacent to Mono Lake in the eastern Sierra of California. The weather forecast had been for sun and clouds and as you can see from the photo those were the conditions during the shoot. Because Mono Lake was not in the central path of the eclipse, the "ring of fire" did not appear. The maximum eclipse was about 87 percent. Nevertheless, it was a impressive and fun experience. It is not just the destination, but the journey.
