        The big event throughout the country this August was the Total Eclipse of the Sun. Although not in the band of totality we had a pretty good viewing of the Solar Eclipse here in Discovery Bay, Ca.

         Peak coverage in Discovery Bay, 37' North Latitude

 

      Solar Eclipse
At it's peak we got about 81% totality as the moon moved in front of the sun around 10am. I used an 840mm lens equivalent shielded with a solar filter and took about 100 shots over a 1 hour 40 minute time frame and created a composite image with 13 frames. Yellow color from solar filter. The next total Solar Eclipse visible in the US will be in 7 years on April 8, 2024

 “A Classic Delta August"

The milder temperatures we had in July were replaced in August with some extreme highs as temps soared to over 110’. As the summer seemed to get hotter and hotter with hazy skies and somewhat muggy weather our bays and sloughs seemed to pick up in water sports activities as people headed to the water to cool down. Our somewhat bland July sunsets were replaced with some pretty spectacular sunrise and sunset skies as smoke from several California wildfires led to some vivid red and orange skies. It was a classic Delta August.
