I didn't even care about the partial eclipse of the sun today, since the weather forecast promised a cloudy enough weather that it would not be visible. The clouds did however partly disappear during the morning, so I figured I should give it a try. I left work and grabbed my bike half an hour before the eclipse was to be at its maximum and went to find a suitable spot. Had I known it would be this visible, I would have taken some longer optics and sought out a better place to observe it. I did actually have my new camera (more about that later) with me and got some pictures with the normal range zoom. With my 400 mm lens I could have gotten some great shots, though.


  1. Great photos! But you should have been here in Paimio because the sky was clear of clouds.

  2. Very nice! Here we had a thick gray overcast the whole day. :(
