Day Turns to Night (2017)

The "diamond ring" effect captured during the North American total solar ecplise in August 2017. The diamond ring is visible for a few seconds just as totality begins or ends. Timing is everything! At our location in Madras, Oregon, totality lasted for 2 minutes and 3 seconds. During totality, the temperature dropped ~20 degrees F and the wind went completely still. Being able to witness this event in person was truly one of the most amazing experiences of my life!
