Bright light turned to sudden gloom and I looked out the window
to see a distinct crescent shape in the sky.
Out came the camera and a sequence of opportunist shots ensued.
|As the cloud cover began to break I had to put the camera down|
before the light got too strong again.
After the eerie half-light in otherwise blue skies
signified the point of maximum coverage, gloom came again
and I managed a brief trio of shots as the moon passed out of the sun.
We were quite fortunate in the northeast, I certainly didn't expect to see any part of the eclipse with the naked eye let alone get photographs, possibly a once-in a lifetime experience (last chance for an old steg like me anyway)
