Last week during the "Great American Eclipse," which we didn't see much of in Southwest Florida, I shared a post with images from my good buddy, Bob Davis. Although we weren't going to get full vision of the eclipse, I still wanted to make a point. Even if I had a perfect view, why would I bother to attempt the capture when some of the most talented artists in the industry, Bob being one of them, had spent days getting ready, were poised and waiting?
The following day, Bob posted a series of great images and the day after that, his "partner in crime," posted the composite below. The fun of imaging isn't always in being the one who got the shot, but enjoying the friendships with those who did!
The last full solar eclipse that crossed the entire United States was in 1918 - ninety years ago and the next one, visible in the U.S. is in 2024, but you don't have to wait seven years to see more of Bob's images or attend one of his workshops. Bob and Dawn Davis need to be on your radar, and they're only a click away!

Each artist shares what makes the image one of their most favorite. We're over 100 artists featured since the project started.
