Preparing for the Eclipse

(This picture can be enlarged by clicking on it.  Clicking a second time will make it full-sized.)

Fairfield Glade is in the zone of totality for the solar eclipse on August 21, so we’re all hoping for clear weather on that day.  I’ve been practicing getting photos of the sun in preparation for the big day.  I don’t have a lens long enough to get any details on the surface of the sun, but I’m hoping I’ll be able to get some sharp pictures as the moon passes between earth and the sun.  The picture above is my latest attempt to get a clear picture of the sun.
