A lot of people have been asking about particular places to view the total solar eclipse listed in the travel guide I wrote. When I wrote this guide four months ago the information was accurate to the best of my knowledge from online resources, emails, and phone calls with each place listed.
But plans change. Details change. Some places that were free now require tickets. Other places have decided to close their doors that day. Business hours have changed. I am not privy to all this information, and even if I was I could not keep it all current, especially this close to the eclipse. My travel guide was just that: a guide to help get you started.
Please contact these businesses, state and national parks, and tourism officials to confirm details yourself. I have included website links, telephone numbers when possible, and contact information where available. And feel free to drop me an email at email@example.com if you have any other questions.
A bolt of lightning streaked over our heads and the thunder boomed almost immediately. Rain was coming down as if from a giant shower head in the sky.

Ever see that cutesy meme floating around the Internet comparing the two types of drivers in the world: each see the gas needle almost at “E” and one says “I need to get gas immediately” while the other says “I can go a bit longer.” I’m the one who is always trying to pump just […]
For me, zoos have always been large parks filled with endless wonder. It is a place I can view exotic animals, see them up close, and capture a few good photos. But recently I have become disenchanted with zoos. I no longer feel excited to capture good photos through plexiglass walls or chain link fences. […]
The photographer in me comes first wherever I travel. After spending a three day weekend in Beaufort and the Sea Islands of South Carolina, I had one final stop to make. I wanted an amazing photo of the Old Sheldon Church Ruins in Yemassee. I was surrounded by pitch blackness and a chorus of tree […]
This is my tale of how I spent three hours chasing a storm and only captured a single photo.
Planning a travel photography trip around blooming spring flowers, the peak of the summer tourism season, or the peak of fall foliage is fairly simple. You have to work around weather conditions such as a cloudy days and thunderstorms, but you at least know you have a 2-3 week period to capture the best photos […]
