Partial eclipse of the sun

Standard

So this evening there was a partial eclipse of the sun… wasn’t holding out much hope of capturing it as the weather had clouded over an hour before it was due…

Decided to head out to a spot where I knew I could capture the sun on its way down either way… rather be there and not get it than not be there and miss it 🙂

Was pretty bright but still potential for the sun to hide behind the cloud so stuck it out… took a snap of a lonely air ballon… would have a great view of the eclipse if it happened from there 🙂

Was really not looking good as the time for the eclipse approached….

Slowly and surely the sun broke out of cloud cover with the moon doing its thing…
