If you read yesterdays post then you might remember this quote:
By trusting the process and not focusing on the thoughts of success or failure...I guess that this is the lesson I have been learning this year. If you enjoy the journey, the images will come.

As the moon dipped below the horizon, sinking further into the earths shadow. The sun was lighting up the clouds on the other horizon, with reds and yellows. The weather forecast we wanted for the eclipse was clear skies, there was a possibility of clouds but in the end it was mostly clear. But now after the show, the clouds were moving in. The truth is pretty sunrises happen all the time, but without the time to see it, the gear to capture it and a decent foreground they will just fade into the daylight. A passing treat, the one that got away. But in this case, by pure chance, I had all three. It wasn't perfect but it was nice enough.
