“Dance beneath the stars, as you drink in the night…feel the force of nature penetrate your skin, spin with the world as the magic sinks in” Christy Anne Martine.
I’m still feeling the emotions from experiencing the total eclipse on Aug 21, 2017. Words can’t express the energy of the totality, the awe of the diamond ring and solar flares, the surreal glowing of a 360 degree sunset view of Mt. Hood and the vineyards during the 94 seconds of totality. But fortunately we we were able to capture several perspectives with 7 video and photo cameras – telephoto lense close up detail of the stages of the eclipse, wide angle views of the of the crowd & vineyard, and drone views of our group of 100 people hiking from Bethel heights winery past Temperance Hill Vineyard to Cristom’s highest elevation planting, Eileen vineyard. Here, on top of the Eola Hills, we drank wine, ate oysters, and shared a once in a lifetime experience with unobstructed views over the Willamette Valley.
