Sometimes I’m in the wrong place at the wrong time, as I was in Virginia last August when the earthquake struck just ten miles from my client’s office.
Sometimes I am in the right place at the right time. That was the case today.
Lake Tahoe was in the direct path of the total eclipse that traversed the southwestern states.
This was my second total eclipse, the last one was back in 1970. I was visiting Virginia Beach at the time. That one was more pronounced because the moon was closer to the earth, blotting out more of the sun. It grew dark enough for the crickets to chirp at noon.
This picture was taken with my camera phone using a piece of undeveloped 35mm film over the lens, which accounts for the orange tint.
