I went to see the total solar eclipse on August 21, 2017, and I chose to go to Madras, OR to see it. I'm primarily a photographer, so this video is made from time lapse and still photos set to what I think is appropriate music for this (which probably means I'm dating myself).

You may notice some flickering in the sun during the time lapse prior to totality. That's because there were wildfires in the area, and smoke clouds were drifting between us and the sun. I mostly corrected for the exposure changes in post-production, but the smoke wasn't always even so you will see some effects from it.
