Great American Eclipse – Digital Illustrations

I was fortunate to get to see and experience the total eclipse today. There is nothing like actually seeing it in person. You could actually see the red solar prominences coming off the sun with the unaided eye. It didn’t get as dark as I thought it would, but it got much cooler then I expected. And the rooster in the distance was a nice touch. I manages six photos during totality using a 200mm lens and a 1/50th shutter setting. The illustration above was created using my photos as reference. I have updated the illustration I created yesterday to match what I saw.
