            We traveled south about 45 miles to try to get away from clouds and get in the center of the path of the eclipse and get a nice background (playa lake). Things were going well until just at the moment of the total annular eclipse when a cloud partially obliterated the view. Better than the view at the LLL eclipse party, but still not good. The LLL had an estimated 2,800 people in attendance for their eclipse party! 
       It looked like everything was going to be perfect until about five minutes before the total eclipse, and then the clouds moved in. We discussed trying to make a run to a more clear area but decided that losing the lake background and probably not being able to clear the clouds in such a short time was not worth risking where we were. Plus if we had moved, we would have lost the privacy we had for a nude photo shoot.

           I hope you all have a wonderful New Year. I plan to get more art made this year than last. It won't take much to surpass what I produced last year.
