Drove 1,100 miles roundtrip from SF just for this and slept overnight in my car; last minute decision to drive. The experience to witness this in person was breathtaking. People were cheering as it approached totality.

No brackets, just one single shot.

Thanks for looking.

Thanks! I'm home now., Phil :-). It took five hours to drive 45 miles from Madras to Bend. I stayed at the Days Inn and left Bend at 4:00 a.m. yesterday.

I live in the East Bay and it took me 15 hours (usually an 8 hour drive) from Salem to Concord. I hear you about the traffic nightmare! How did you get the magnificent huge waves? Was that photo out of the camera or did you get them from Photoshop or Lightroom?

Nice shot!

Fine work, Voltaire. Things weren't as gnarly in S. Illinois but the bet with a clear sky was a lot riskier. I was still surprised by the crowds.

Hi Bill,
I'm not sure what you mean by the waves. Nothing was photoshopped. This was from LR and converted to SilverEfex Pro for black and white. :-) Let me see if I can add the exif so you know how I shot this.

Thanks,
Voltaire

Awesome! I envy you. That is the shot of one's life time. You may be the only one who got this. You should challenge any one who got a similar shot to post.

What I mean by "waves" is that it looks as if there are 3 dimensional waves coming off the eclipse that cross it. Most of us got light crossing it, but yours looks like 3D waves. It's actually very cool looking and I was wondering you got it that way? I've looked at maybe a hundred photos of the eclipse and I took dozens of photos myself from Salem and none of what I've seen is as unique as yours. I don't know if it was luck or taking the one photo whereas most of us bracketed our photos, but it's pretty magnificent just the same.

My guess is that most of us used a native ISO, around 100, and bracketed the photos which caused the shots to have a very slow shutter speed (~1 second or slightly less) and relatively low aperture (around F9 in my case). Whereas you used a very high ISO, very high Fstop, and very fast shutter speed. So it seems reasonable that it would have come out different because it was capturing different light.

Regardless, you have a unique photo so good work!

Not to knock the shot, it's a great one, but he is not the only one who got it.

As someone who lives in the path of totality and has seen the mayhem over the last year leading up to the eclipse, there are literally thousands of photos of the eclipse in this fashion.

None of which compare to Andrew Studer's photo from Smith Rock in my opinion but that is a whole other story. I put my energy into a video of it from my drone but did manage to get one decent photo. To my surprise it made the top 15 best photos of the eclipse by That Oregon Life, well down the list from Andrew Studer's shot. I didn't feel my shot was even worthy enough of being on the same list.
