Total Solar Eclipse

Total Solar Eclipse

Here’s a few pics of the event last night, shot with the D100 with 2x tele-extender + 500 mm lense.

As the moon falls into the earth’s shadow:

As the last bit of direct sunlight disappears from the moon and total eclipse occurs:

Illuminated only by ambient light and the glow of light refracted around the edges of the earth:

Mount Royal

Mount Royal

Climbed Mt. Royal this weekend. This is a small peak at the very end of the 10-mile Range above Frisco. The 10-mile range continues to the south and includes some impressive peaks including some of Colorado’s 14’ers. This particular peak is barely 10,500, but it shoots vertically up from the edge of Main St. in town, providing some nice views of the town and lake Dillon.

In the distance, you can see I70 running between Frisco and Dillon/Silverthorne..
