June 10 Solar Eclipse
June 10 eclipse at 6:25 PST. Location is a place called Serrano Valley in the Santa Monica Mountains. Air quality was very bad with a 22,000 acre forest fire burning 40 miles beyond the horizon above Ojai.

I have taken better shots of this valley but not with a solar eclipse ! Shot with a 4x5, Schneider Super Symmar XL 80mm lens on Velvia. I used a polarizer and a 3 stop soft ND grad but probably should have used a hard one.

The coyotes were barking at this moment. I usually only hear their chorus as the sunsets there.

Trying to show it big since the sun is so small. The light and pollution was bad, but I had no choice except shoot it to get the eclipse.
