This morning we had the rare skyward event of a solar eclipse. It was something I've been looking forward to for a while, but when I got up this morning I was very disappointed to see that it was very misty. But I was hopeful. At its furthest we would have seen about a 64% eclipse and that was going to be at about 08:15. Just after eight I headed outside and the sun was starting to break through. Now how do I photograph it? Big question. Without anything it was just too bright. Even with lots of mist around. I tried taking it through my sunglasses but still too bright. Then I
grabbed borrowed one of my colleague's (thanks Sadie) sunglasses as well and wola! Here is my effort.
