Joseph Cowlishaw  Hello 👋 from Southern Utah, 🇺🇸 | Family | Toyography | Wowflutes @wowfluteco | Utah UFO Fest @utahufofest | bro @talking_tree

So last minute we decided to try and escape the cloud cover to see the eclipse. We drove about 40 miles and were able to get into some thinner clouds. I actually think these images turned out rather well with the partial clouds!

Red is from my fingers blocking some of the lens. Green is through a welding helmet. Grayish is through the eclipse glasses; and the last two are no filter except the clouds.

Blue Mood
By Joseph Cowlishaw
.
Smooth melancholy reverberates the blackness
Deep blues shadow the walls as an eclipse in midday
Brief and concise but dominate
A sense of wonder flows through the depths as a cool treeless shade
Erupting in alleviation
Aversion ensues through the hues of blues
Golden glow disrupts the ethos of silence
A buoyancy of introspection through the quaintness of quiet
Tranquility emerges from the abyss
Momentary obscurity vanquished
.
I was thinking about how sadness and depression are very similar to the solar eclipse that is happening today throughout the USA. The eclipse at any location only lasts about two minutes. Those minutes may feel so much longer as we experience something so surreal - but they are still only minutes. I don't claim to understand depression and the feelings associated with it, but I do feel they are a small moment in comparison to the joy of this life and the warmth of the sun coming out of that momentary obscurity.

Removing the helmet while on duty is prohibited...

Frank would rather ask for forgiveness than permission! Besides, these helmets are too stuffy outdoors. 😊

The Three Finger Salute
.
It is an old and rarely used gesture of our district, occasionally seen at funerals. It means thanks, it means admiration, it means goodbye to someone you love.

Loyal Fan
(Turn on the sound)
.
I spent my afternoon in the sheep tunnel to get this shot.😂 🐑 It was rather mucky from all the flooding from recent monsoon rains. But it added to the eerie atmosphere. I went in with the intention to take some kind of noir shot but I ended up with this somber shot with the dog as the sax players only loyal Fan... the song is Spiaggia Deserta by Piero Umiliani who has done some amazing Italian gangster music.

I love it when small clouds dwarf mountains.😄

🎶
Sunshine, lollipops and rainbows
Everything that's wonderful is what I feel when we're together
Brighter than a lucky penny
When you're near the rain just disappears, dear
And I feel so fine
Just to know that you are mine
My life is sunshine, lollipops and rainbows
That's how this refrain goes
Come on, join in, everybody
Sunshine, lollipops and rainbows
Everything that's wonderful is sure to come your way
When you're in love to stay
🎶 ~ Lesley Gore
