Re: Solar Eclipse

Better weather than expected up here in Wensleydale. This is an unretouched jpeg (apart from resizing). E-M5, 50-200 SWD, Camdiox variable ND filter.

Re: Solar Eclipse

Congratulations to all who were fortunate to see it and take photographs. I was in the part of the country where the cloud was so thick that the light barely dimmed. I don't know what the fuss was all about anyway - it's reputed that Manchester experiences a total solar eclipse on at least 300 days a year!

Re: Solar Eclipse

I would show you my attempt at a series from cloudy Aberdeen, but apparently I can add any link to any post yet!

My poor attempt at a series in cloudy Aberdeen:

Re: Solar Eclipse

Just reading in the Telegraph this morning, the National Grid lost 850 Megawatts of PV power during the duration of the eclipse.
As my kids might have said when they were teenagers, "that's mad".

So the eclipse was something else that we have to pay for! And I always thought such things were freely provided by Nature.......
