A few comments from recent adventurers: I learned a lot abut how to use my camera and flash to make even better caputred. Spelunkingster rated it really liked it Jul 18, It sure was exciting!


I kept shooting anyway, shooting through the clouds hoping all the time that the clouds would somehow pass quickly and we could still at least capture a few seconds of the total eclipse. We had to deal with the drama of zisfr cover two xaptured but all worked out perfectly.

Our first Safari sold out in 48 hours so we added a second set of dates to accommodate all who want to join us on this once in a lifetime adventure. It too was taken with a shorter mm or effectively mm on my Canon 7D Mk2. If interested we had two people that had to cancel so we still have one room people left at the main lodge for either safaris.

The moon continued its journey across the disk of the sun for another 90 minutes and I continued to shoot to the end still trying to soak up and appreciate what just happened. Funny you should ask.

Here is is below. Michael and I kept checking our time – the eclipse was due to begin in just a few short minutes.

A check with the Nashville website gave many suggestions – we opted for the beautiful Cheekwood Estate and Gardensthe pight Maxwell Coffee estate and now a beautiful arboretum and museum, about 8 miles outside the city.

After we arrived home we decided the best place to find wild animals was the world famous Cincinnati Zoo and Botanical Gardens so off we went. How is the image stabilization? One of the best photography tutorial books I’ve ever read.

Also my thanks for all the folks that stopped by to look through my camera and snap a few of the images off my LCD screen. This adventure is absolutely First Class all the way and at a cost that will not break the bank – like so many other safaris. Plus, the book includes the complete cover-to-cover layout from one of David’s wedding album designs to help spark your creative juices and give you ideas to take your own layouts to the next level. You guessed it – LaDawn had to rent the car with the steering wheel on the right side of the car and had to drive on the left side of the highway, which she had never experienced – YIKES!!!

But as someone who was needing a crash-course book on what to do for the first wedding I ever photographed for a friend, not a clientit was useful
