Partial Solar Eclipse


This morning’s  solar eclipse (9 March 2016) was only partial here in Phuket and I was on Kamala beach without the camera for most of it, torturing my eyes as I tried to view it through sunglasses held at arm’s length. By the time I got home, it was almost over, but I did manage this shot of the final moments through the trees at the rear of our apartment, an 8x neutral density filter hand-held over the front of the lens.

Canon G3X on manual. ISO 125 1/1000 at f/11 + 8x ND filter.
