Solar eclipse

As you can see I have strayed away from my usual theme for this post.  Did not expect to be able to see or photograph the eclipse the morning until I suddenly realised the sun was just appearing through the cloud cover.

On the next 2 you  can clearly see the sun spot on the upper third

It was visible for about 25 minutes before the cloud cover began to thicken

and this was the last shot I obtained before it was covered completely by the cloud; just 5 minutes before it would have been at its maximum.

  1. Nice pics Sue!
    You have some dust or dirt on the sensor of your camera. Have you tried doing a sensor clean (in-camera function) with the lens detached?
