~ Eclipse Light ~ In A Vase On Monday ~

After walking the grounds for a half hour, I decided to engage this eclipse of moon over sun from my west-facing deck.  In the process of surveying for my spot, I snipped some fresh Hydrangea and Rudbeckia blossoms to make a vase for Monday. Knowing how merciless bright morning sunlight is to such displays, I resolved to take photos of the vase in its setting throughout the eclipse, and present them without enhancing color and dark/light.

Sun Rising

All photos taken by Panasonic DMC-F247 on AUTO for ‘scenery’ or ‘close-up’. None have been enhanced, thought I did straighten a few and crop one or two!

Sun is rising at the same time the moon begins to cover it.

As the light changed from strong morning glare to the softness of evening (in less than an hour) the texture and color of each Hydrangea petal mellowed. Such a gentle experience. So happy to be here.

Ooh, Shiny!

    I also chose some flowers in my yard to give my photo of the sun/sky some added interest. I’m going to post them on this week’s Skywatch Friday. Enjoyed seeing the changes in the flowers color. Interesting post.
