Edited photos from today’s Solar Eclipse


I can’t believe how lucky we were in the Midlands this morning with the clear skies. Only right at the end did the clouds obscure the sun/moon combo which is why I’ve not got a 6th photo. You’ll notice that some of the shots are right down at f/40, never thought I’d be shooting that stopped down, but it seemed to work just fine. If you look at the first photo closely, you can see some dark Sun Spots.

This is one great thing with the Nikon D7100, it shoots at a maximum shutter speed of 1/8000sec which certainly helped today.
