You could say…they eclipsed your expectations

I got up early to take a look this morning but could't see much through the haze. I thought "eh, someone on r/boston will have a nice shot"


InfiniteBlink

I did the same, I have a Samsung S21 Ultra which has this "telephoto" lens, i zoomed in 10x on the sun but i still couldnt see it. I then used the 100x digital zoom and i saw the whole transition happen, got some good pics of it.


Btrex

Awesome! I drive to Wollaston hoping to frame it behind Boston Light, but the low clouds ruined that. I was able to get a bunch like these though. Although none with an airplane!


Exhii

Haha perks of living in south Boston, there’s constantly airplanes in the sky


Dominicsjr

If I was on that flight I’d kill for this photo haha, hopefully they’re checking the subreddit and make the connection.

I haven't see as many photographers at Wollaston Beach in the 5 years I lived on Channing St as I did in the 90 minutes I was there today. Hope you got some good pics!


Btrex

I took a photo of all the photogs😂: https://pbs.twimg.com/media/E3hZtLUWYAADAQH?format=jpg&name=4096x4096

Are you serious? What are the odds! Unless... you are the friend I met that morning, but he lives in 'Medfid', not the North End :-) \[not sure if I can or have to prove it to anyone, but...\] That's me in the neon Boston Marathon jacket!!!Did we talk? I talked to the guy to my right - Armin Kososki - a nature photographer from RI. [https://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1283599376](https://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1283599376) PS: Also that corner, facing the Boston skyline is where I sat many a summer evening, feet dangling, reading and people watching! PPS: Nice time-lapse of the eclipse.


Btrex

Ha. No. We didn't talk. I set up a little further North (just to your left). Did you get anything good? Happy 📸to you.


DaaathVader

>📸 Yeah, I did. I posted a couple on IG: [https://www.instagram.com/cirrus.pixels/](https://www.instagram.com/cirrus.pixels/) Hindsight being 20/20 and all, had I known that we wouldn't get to see the eclipse till 5:15am, I would have stopped by the Squantum/Wollaston Yacht Club first. Those reds from 4:45ish - 5am with all the anchored boats in silhouette would have made for one splendid photo too. But nope... I drove right past it in a rush to set up!


JoshS1

I would love to get a large format print of the picture with the airplane silhouette. If you're interested please DM me. Ive got a great spot on a bare wall waiting for something just like this!

Outstanding shots! May I ask what gear did you use?


Exhii

Thank you!! I use a canon sx530 hs! Got a refurbished one last year and for the price I’ve been really happy with it.


TheRedGiant77

Great photos!


Exhii

Thank you!


LibertarianLola

Was this yesterday??? Clearly out of the loop...


IrnBruBruh

Did you see the ring of fire?


L_gecko

The ring of fire wasn’t visible in the US. Scroll down to “How can I watch the eclipse?” [here](https://www.nytimes.com/2021/06/10/science/solar-eclipse-ring-of-fire.html) to see where it was visible.


Exhii

No :( Boston is south of the ring of fire. I think Boston had 70-80% coverage.


Quincyperson

Pretty cool pictures


Exhii

Thanks!


Yak_Rodeo

buela2913

aljumana

jenesaisquoi

what does the caption say/how do i read the rest of it?


lite336

If ur on mobile and click on the photo it should have it at the bottom


SilverRoseBlade

Amazing! I slept through my alarm and missed it but the pics are amazing.


the-hoff-mann

Get the app PhotoPills and you’ll never be in the wrong location again. I used it to plan my eclipse shots this morning and it worked perfectly.


Exhii

Thanks for the tip! I want to get more into photography so I'll be sure to check it out!


darksoles_

Nice!!! Tried to see it this morning but too damn cloudy for me lol


StevieSparta

Easily best looking thing from Southie
