Luckily, I looked up at one point to see the eclipse through a tiny chink in the cloud cover. Really, the only visible hole in the clouds, and the sun and moon were right behind it. I felt lucky, to say the least. So, I ripped my camera off the tripod, changed lenses, and started snapping away.
This little hole seemed to continue for quite a while, and I was very happy to be able to snap quite a few shots of it.
Presented here in order. Shot with a 500mm lens.
|I noticed this lovely shed in the allotments on Westfield (in Richmond) on my way back down the hill. I thought it was quite appropriate!|
|I snapped this one with the Q as I was walking away (main camera put away). As always, the Q has performed very nicely. Totally unedited.|
|A total eclipse passed directly over Richmond in 1927, very close to where I was shooting from.|
