My Sunday Photo

Well, it had to be!





























I remember the last solar eclipse back in 1999. I'd taken the day off work and I took the kids (now the grown-up kids) and my mom to the Licky Hills to see it. We'd had to abandon the car halfway because there were so many people trying to get up the road at the same time. We all walked together and stood on the hills. It was pretty amazing.
It did feel weird that this one was in the morning and the kids (the young ones) had gone to school. Still, something to remember.
I had no photos of the first one I saw. I did take some but I didn't have a digital camera and none of them turned out.

  1. Fantastic photo - I hope the kids at school did a school project on the eclipse! Something you will all remember I'm sure.
    Have a great week.

    1. Yes, I have to say, the school was great, the little ones watched on live tv while the older ones went into the playground with pinhole cameras. They learnt loads. Thanks for stopping by x

    1. I think the clouds helped, couldn't see a thing on my phone camera though.

    1. Yes, it is, I'm glad I got a photo this time....I may be around for the next one, whether I'll be chasing a photo is another story.

    1. The cloud seemed to be following the sun, if we turned around the rest of the sky was clear and bright!

  7. How incredible - despite the clouds you managed to get such a stunning photo. Me and miss T caught a glimpse between the clouds on way home from school run. Totally unprepared so we both looked with bare eyes as she thought she was looking at the moon and i was mesmerised by seeing it when noone round here expected to because of so much cloud. Well done for capturing the moment on camera so well. X

    1. I think it was just starting to move across as I took the kids into school, I let them look for two seconds each with my sunglasses on, but I'm not sure if they actually saw anything. I think the clouds helped to stop the glare a little, I was lucky catching a break in them. x

  9. I swear I commented on this...I don't see it...so I am commenting again. Your photo is so gorgeous it almost doesn't seem real. I wish we would have gotten to see it like you, I would have loved to have taken a photo like this. It is a piece of art!
