Contest Number: 159 Contest Theme: Open Lens: PENTAX 55-300 Camera: Pentax K 1 Shutter Speed: 1/125s Aperture: F9.5 
Posted By: MASTERFIRE, 11-12-2019, 12:10 AM

I hadn't had my K1 for even thirty days and the 2017 Total Eclipse of the Sun over parts of America was suddenly on everyone's radar. I had no idea what I was doing. ...However, I just happened to have a friend in SC and asked if I could crash at her and her husband's home up in NW South Carolina. "Yes," they said, and I went at the spur of the moment. After studying the path of the sun, my dear friend shuttled me to her aunt's house in the middle of no where, but near dead center of the sun's path. Everything happened so fast. I took hundreds of shots. I pulled away on the focal length, so as to not lose sight. I was a true novice at such an event and made a number of mistakes. Regardless, I had driven nearly eight hours and all the time and money I knew was at risk. Yet, I might never get another chance. This image is heavily cropped. Nonetheless, I believe it was worth the trip to get it... Great friend, and great excitement. I've taken many digital shots I consider superior, but they were not taken with a RICOH/PENTAX camera. I submit this image because of the adventure. ...love...
