..............Hoping you guys down in Texas are doing okay (not really sure exactly where you are and if you're affected).

Tnx Sammy, I'm in Arlington, TX (DFW .. between Dallas & Fort Worth) we are not storm affected .. about 3-4 inches of rain here compared to Houston area @ 53-inches.

I don't know how you feel but nothing I've seen quite capture the experience fully but hopefully it'll give people an idea when they see it.
Thanks Sammy.

The prepared photographer had a Nikon D500 and the 150-600 Tamron lens plus filters. I haven't seen his photographs yet, but the totality photos looked great on his LCD.

The rendition posted earlier is from RAW. I can lighten up things and get more detail but actually liked the starker black contrast for a print.

If I reduce the black and bring up the shadows, posted below is what I get (with a lot of variations). I now have some ideas for the next total eclipse, and if we all go to the Dallas area, we should have a good show on April 8, 2024.

Glad to hear you are safe and sound and quite a ways removed from the storm's immediate effects. We have friends in Houston and they all were doing okay, last we heard.
