    Great shot, Jim. Everyone ’round here was bitching about the clouds, but I thought they made it even more beautiful!

      Thanks Tif!!

      I actually think that, without the clouds I could not have gotten this shot. I didnt have the right filter. The clouds blocked just enough for this to work!

    Damn Jim! That is just totally fabulous. I'm in eastern WA & missed the whole thing due to clouds. Thanks for your lovely picture.

    This is probably one of the best “real” photographs I’ve seen in a while. Great take on the challenge.

      Loren, I used my Nikon D3000 with the Nikkor zoom lens. I put it on the tripod, pointed in the right direction and fired away!
