Great Shots: Sometimes, insomnia pays off


Photos and story by WNLP’s Bob Wellinski

Clear skies and a case of insomnia made for a perfect opportunity to get out at the crack of dawn to capture Thursday morning’s partial solar eclipse. Although brief, it was definitely picturesque (especially with the early morning fog). The moment the sun rose above the tree line at 5:15 a.m., a small fraction of the sun was visibly eclipsed by the silhouetted moon. Just a short 26 minutes later, it was over. The photos of just the sun were taken near CR-250S. The photo with electrical towers was taken at Luhr County Park. The final photo was taken using a filter made by Scott Johnson of Ascott Window Tinting of La Porte.
