Eclipse Photos Are Up!

Edit: Here is a video of the moment of totality, taken from about 50 meters away from where I was watching 😀

Eclipsed!

-=-

I’ve uploaded some photos from my eclipse adventures! There aren’t many of the eclipse itself, I only had my iPhone on me at the time. I’ll pinch some from my friend who took a few DSLR shots and throw them in the album soon. Anyway, you should click here and take a look, if you like.

Here are a couple of tasters.

Here’s a 100% crop of the iPhone:

So why do I keep forgetting to take my freaking point and shoot with me? IT FITS IN MY POCKET!!

argh.

I’ll upload more when I go away later this year. In the meantime, I haven’t really got anything to photograph right now.
