6/10/2020 - solar eclipse over at West Pierhead Lighthouse - Cleveland, OH
Dear guy fishing -
I owe you a free print if you’re seeing this.
Planned this shot over the past couple days & wasn’t even sure I’d be able to get in the position to make it happen. Plan: scramble west on the break wall from Edgewater as far as humanly possible & pray. Did that very & arrived on the scene in the nick of time. BUT, those thick clouds at the horizon were SURE to blot out the sun. Set up a nice wide sunrise shot instead.
And then BOOM, there was the sun. Larg'e & in charge right next to the lighthouse. Just like I’d envisioned. Ive never set up a tripod & swapped to a telephoto faster ever. Fingers trembling the whole time.
Guy in the boat…NOT in the plan. YOU get a print!
