I didn’t make it to the lake. I had to stay home, so, I bundled up and sat on my back steps.
The little iPhone wasn’t happy about the cold but my big Canon camera did just fine.
The recordings are from the beginning of the eclipse to the first of the totality.
Twice a day, when the daylight is abundant, a special ”golden hour” happens.
The daylight is softer and redder than when the sun is up high in the sky.
The light makes the earth, sky, water and yes, eagles glow.
This adult bald eagle was magical in the golden hour just before sunset today.

I admit: I had gotten more than a little frustrated with the rain and more rain.
Then Mother Nature handed me a breath-taking gift.
On top of the dam this morning my friend sang out “look at that”.
Though a fine veil of rain, a rainbow appeared over the peninsula between the Haw River and the New Hope River.
