Clouds were no match for the eclipse near Otto, North Carolina
Lens: 55-300mm PLM Camera: K-3 Photo Location: Near Otto, NC Aperture: F8

I'm not done processing through my photos so here's a taste! Not bad for the 55-300mm PLM. I started planning for this eclipse 2 years ago and I had no idea if any of the photos would work, but I had programmed different settings using all three user modes and bracketed everything. I'm so pleased with the results, but nothing beat the thrilling of seeing it with my own eyes. The light cloud cover during totality was no match for the brightness of the corona (as seen in the 2nd image), just amazing.
