Eclipse

This is the lounge, after all.

Are there any photos of the eclipse?

Just got one good picture from a "simple" 18X zoom camera, by pure chance, standing in the protection of a doorway, with the sun's glare out of view. "Don't try it at home" unless you are experienced and the sky is cloudy.

Will process on main pc to enhance and reduce file size from initial 1.45MB.

Didn't feel a thing down here by the channel tunnel. No darker then any other gloomy day, though the seagulls got a bit squawky around 9.20. Anyone wanting a photo would have had their hopes eclipsed.

Re: Eclipse

Amazing shot Ribblelancs. Thanks for sharing. We didn't see anything at all unfortuately :smileysad:. Only another 11 years to wait for the next one though.

 

Cheers

Re: Eclipse

You will have to go to USA in 2017.
This was why the picture was taken to share with others.
There's also a .raw image of much greater detail, just in case.

Re: Eclipse

It was so cloudy here that I didn't even bother going out to take a look.  It just got a bit darker, then brightened up again.

Re: Eclipse

Same here Ectophile, it was too cloudy to see anything for me. Just noticed everything getting darker for a bit, and that was it.

Great shot Ribblelancs, well impressed!

Re: Eclipse

Great photo!

 

Too cloudy on the other side of the Pennines in our neck of the woods to really notice anything.
