From our location we only got around a 90% eclipse today…still not bad.   Seeing these photos —  that were not very visible in the camera until after the image was shot–brings back memories of an eclipse back when I was in grades School.  Good old Wikipedia and  a  bit of digging and I think it was this one.

 

This was not shot full frame since the longest lens I have that that I also have a dark enough filter was my old trusty manual  Nikon 105 2.5 lens.  Can’t decide if I should color correct the image or not.  I kinda like the purple cast it has–even though that purple cast is somewhat artificially created by the filter pack I used.

I had every intention of trying to update this blog with some more of the photos from our  trip but keep allowing myself to get sidetracked on other projects.  Anyway in honor of the masters golf game  I’ll post a basic photo of Robert Tyre Jones (Bobby Jones) grave.  He is the guy who designed (or help design) the private Augusta National golf course (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bobby_Jones_(golfer))

This was shot as part of our visit to the Atlanta City owned Oakland cemetery. For some reason  that is hard to describe (perhaps it was the perfect last thing to do before heading to the airport)  it was really one of the high points of visiting Atlanta.  The grounds are well maintained and it is really is a great park to walk around in.

Golf balls are left in homage on the grave that is laid out as small putting green.

I’ve been away from the blog post for a while but thought I would try to take another stab at updating it a bit more often.  Just got back from a vacation of the south where we went through Savannah GA and anyone who has ever been to Savannah knows they have many fountains.  So here is the first one I shot.  This one happens to be the fountain in Warren square.

My camera and I had a minor disagreement today.  It wanted to complain about a corrupt memory card and I wanted it to shoot some photos.   After a few wasted seconds I won but not until the majority of bike riders flew by.  And fly they do.

So here is the basic long shot of the pack:

Amgen Tour of California Stage1 Pack

 

And the standard photo of the pack.

2011 Amgen Tour of California

RaboBank 2011 Tour of California

 

 

I tried to identify these two rider properly but I guess at this hour of the night my skills are not up to the task.  Here is the link to the Rabobank’s cycling home page.  http://www.rabobank.com/content/about_us/sponsoring/cycling/tab2.jsp.

According to the official Tour of California page this is the rider list for Rabobank:

  • Oscar Freire (ESP)
  • Lars Boom (NED)
  • Coen Vermeltfoort (NED)
  • Paul Martens (GER)
  • Michael Matthews (AUS)
  • Grischa Niermann (GER)
  • Laurens Ten Dam (DEN)
  • Maarten Tjallingii (NED)

Had the honor of shooting my nephew and a couple of friends yesterday in old town Sacramento.  It will probably take a me a day or two more to go through those photos but thought I would post a shot to Tower Bridge with the roadway up.  A boat was just about to go underneath it but I failed to get a decent shot of the boat.

Girls and Rugby?    Some say it is not a Rugby game until  there is blood and true to the  Game this was a true Rugby game!  While not nearly as aggressive as the Men it was still fun to watch and shot.  Thanks for the invite to go shoot the game.  The game was between Sierra Foothills Rugby and  Rio Linda

The album is here: Rugby Photo Album April 1

Here is the photo of the day:

 

And the entire set.
