How do you end up with cars on the road, cars off the road, people everywhere, and a train (...well the train was actually exactly where it was supposed to be but still) all in one shot?
The worst part about being stuck in gridlock traffic in a flat state is being unable to get a good view of just how many cars are stopped ahead (spoiler alert: it was miles and miles worth) www.mayaelaine.com/the-great-american-traffic-jam
Have you ever wondered what happens to traffic when travelers cause a state's population to double in a day? Read and see about my eclipse adventures here: http://www.mayaelaine.com/the-great-american-traffic-jam
The most Halloween picture I have right now. A Cheshire Cat smile. Brought to you by the great American solar eclipse of 2017. Happy Halloween!! :) remember. Only trick or treat at the big houses for full sized candy bars 😜
Here it is. My last eclipse photo (at least for now). This is an HDR composite image with enhanced contrast to show the detail in the sun's #corona . The corona extends far beyond the sun's photosphere (the normally visible part of the sun) and is actually hundreds of times hotter. It's also the main event during a #solareclipse because you can see it with the naked eye. Note how the coronal loops follow where the prominences are. This is because the plasma also follows the sun's magnetic field. #astrophotography#greatamericansolareclipse#solarcorona#eclipse2017#eclipsechasers#eclipsophile

As I said, light was good, and dark was bad. The Sun, of course, was the light of the world, and they understood that. The ancients were not stupid. They saw that the Sun was not God. They never believed that the Sun was God, but they believed that it was the reproduction of God, it was the offspring of God, it was the closest symbol that they could grasp to represent deity in heaven. So they figured that since your son looks a lot like you, well maybe God looks a lot like the Sun, or that the Sun looks a lot like the Father.
Thus, it was assumed that God’s Sun was but a visible representative of the unseen Creator in heaven. So it was said, ‘when you have seen the Son, you have seen the Father.’ Said another way is ‘The Father is glorified in His Son’ … The ancient peoples reasoned that no one on Earth could ever lay claim of ownership to the Sun. Such a magnificent heavenly body must belong to the unseen Creator of the universe. It became, figuratively speaking, not man’s but God’s Sun.
It was only a short hop and skip to the understanding that God’s Sun was ‘The Light of the World’ … Logically even if man himself dies, as long as the Sun comes up each day, life on Earth will continue forever. Therefore, it was said in the ancient texts that everlasting life was ‘the gift’ that the Father gives through his Sun. #JordanMaxwell#iamorrin#orrinsreligion#greatamericansolareclipse#king_dawayne4515

Forgot to post this! I had taken this photo of the total solar eclipse on Aug 21, as seen from Portland, TN (north of Nashville). Took this with my old DSLR, a Canon XT. To be honest, it didn't really look like this in person. It was more of a thin ring of white around the moon. The camera makes the sun look more flared out than it really was. Was amazing to witness. We're already talking about going to see the one in 2024 - maybe in Vermont. We like Vermont. ☀️ 🌙 #solareclipse#solareclipse2017#greatamericaneclipse2017#greatamericansolareclipse
It's been a busy summer at Access #Oregon : fire safety training, #volunteering at a food bank, #TeamBuilding at @topgolf and finally witnessing the Great American Solar Eclipse. We made some pretty awesome #memories !
It has been a little over a week since the #solareclipse , but I have finally finished a #timelapse of the spectacle. After putting together over 1,000 images and setting over 2,000 keyframes, I have a short clip of the event that isn't the best but definitely taught me what I need to do when the next eclipse rolls around. Surprisingly tracking a hot plasma ball moving across the sky that goes through a myriad of exposures is quite difficult.
