South Boston Eclipse
By - Exhii
just checked the sub looking for a quality eclipse pic. these exceeded my expectations. awesome shots
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"
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.
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!
Haha perks of living in south Boston, there’s constantly airplanes in the sky
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!
I took a photo of all the photogs😂:
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.
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.
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.
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!
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?
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.
Was this yesterday??? Clearly out of the loop...
Did you see the ring of fire?
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.
No :( Boston is south of the ring of fire. I think Boston had 70-80% coverage.
Pretty cool pictures
usually hate pics people post in this sub because theyre all so generic but this is awesome
These are stunning pictures, thank you for sharing!
Ominous! LOVE THEM ALL! thanks for sharing
what does the caption say/how do i read the rest of it?
If ur on mobile and click on the photo it should have it at the bottom
Amazing! I slept through my alarm and missed it but the pics are amazing.
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.
Thanks for the tip! I want to get more into photography so I'll be sure to check it out!
Nice!!! Tried to see it this morning but too damn cloudy for me lol
Easily best looking thing from Southie
