I was so frightened by this eclipse yesterday that the last thing that came to mind was my camera!
To me it looked like the end of the world! love your capture

@Maria: Thanks Maria! Yes, I can see how if you hadn't known it was going to happen, it might give you a bit of a scare at first. It's the first time I've seen an eclipse at sunset. It was marvelous to be able to view it with the naked eye.
C'est vraiment très beau

and that's exactly right, I didn't know it was coming...and all of the sudden, a very strong wind started and the light outside got so dimmed that ...I felt I'm wearing very opaque sunglasses

exceptional positioning & control of the light. looks splendid over the water.

@sherri: Thank you very much, Sherri. Nice to see someone local comment here. :-)
Wow, Jason, this was a really well-chosen spot to view the eclipse from - a gorgeous sight well-captured! You were fortunate to be located southwest - seems like it's always cloudy here whenever there is something to be seen!
