Pics from the Eclipse

Creepy Shadows

I took some pics of the eclipse from May 20th with a friend of mine. I tried to take blind pics of the Sun itself, but without anything even approximating the proper filters, I didn’t get much. In any event, major eclipses apparently play havoc with shadows. Who knew? It also turns out that taking a picture of a shadow is easier than taking photos of the Sun without any filters. ¬†Again, who knew? Oh, and I’ve no idea how the refracted image of the partially occluded Sun got into that image. Like this:Like Loading…
