"Ring of fire" and Antelope (some HDR attempts)

Hi everyone,

last May I was in Arizona to experience the ring shaped eclipse.

Like many others I and my buddy Andi stood round the horseshoe bend armed with filters and special sunglasses to follow the total eclipse that - due to the moon being to far away from earth to cover the sun comletely - was ringshaped and hence could at no point be watched with the naked eye..  Page /AZ happend to ly almost exactly on the center path of the moons shadow. What an experience!

here a few, taken with 7D, 2,8 300 L IS I, 2x II, foil filter in front of the front element of the lens, tripod, cable release

even the solar spots were visible and we got an unusual sunset ;o)))

Being there already we obviously had to visit both upper and lower Antelope canyon.

Here a few HDR attempts, 7D, EFS 17-55 or EF L 2,8 70-200-II, tripod, cable release, combined to HDR with Photomatix in post.

Enjoy and happy shooting!
