AUGUST 21
SOLAR ECLIPSE
Red Boiling Springs, Tennessee


I left home at 4:00 to beat the traffic. As I drove through Gallatin there were already signs for Eclipse Parking and the pre-dawn bustle of utility vehicles.
The dawn broke as I traveled, unraveling what was to be an unparalleled day.
My first picture was of a bull in a dawn landscape (5:50 am), then I arrived at my friend Jeff Poppen's farm. It was too early to find people not yet awake,
so I parked by the creek, immersed myself, then wandered the farm with my cameras as the early morning dew glistened, refreshing petals and leaves and my feet.
Fast forward to the Eclipse farm party, where friends and farm hands gathered to eat and stare at the sun with Solar Glasses.
I hiked up to a top pasture/ garden where I stood alone watching the changing light. I shot a series of landscapes as the light changed.
I snapped this moonscape, not trying to compete with the hundreds of photographers who would capture the eclipse in detail.
The day unfolded with shades of light and dark, intermediary colours and patterns, a stream of consciousness set of pictures from dawn to sunset.
Some moments are just to be savoured! Embrace the lunar transition >>>

DAWN, THE DAY OF THE SOLAR ECLIPSE - 6:01 AM

NATHAN BEDFORD FORREST statue
1-65, Nashville
Situated on Bill Dorris' property, the 25ft statue is controversial as the Lieutenant General of the Confederate army was also a KKK “Grand Wizard” (1867)

and a founder member.
Mr. Doris claims that Forrest, a Tennessean, made amends with his slaves by promising to free them regardless of the outcome of the Civil War. He left the KKK and kept his word, apparently relinquishing his wealth by freeing his slaves.
