Friday 20th March - the partial eclipse of the sun !

 7.41am and the sun was peeking through the high cloud - quite good for the camera - it can cope with that
 A little more cloud as the moon took it's first "bite"
 Nice clear one - couldn't really see what I was taking - just looking at the screen and firing the shutter

 As the cloud got thinner the camer suffered from the brightness

 Had to resort to taking through the lens  of the eclipse glasses - hence the colour !

Moving  to the left now

Went back into the warm !
It might not have got much darker here, but, boy it got cooler !
Looks like lots of people had gone out to Maen-dhu Point to watch the event


  1. Amazing pictures ...thankyou Sue...not much to see here ! nice to see Newlyn this morning on T.V. love that walk from Penzance....always meet lots of friendly dogs....and owners ! macca

    1. Wish we'd known that BBC were in Newlyn we'd have changed chanels - we just happened to have Sky News on from near Newquay.
      We really enjoyed seeing it and am pleased you enjoyed the photos
      Cornwall Council did a super job of re-building Newlyn Green after the storms. Sue

  2. FANTASTIC eclipse photo's, Thank you. We had a brilliant view here also, a very eerie feeling when it went darker, poor birds made such a noise then complete silence. By the look of it we had a clearer view in Cornwall than other parts of the Country. Looking forward to the next partial eclipse now in 2026. Apparently this haze we are having is not helping people with Asthma and other chest ailments, hopefully when the warmer weather comes Jim will feel much better.

    1. We really were lucky weren't we, we really noticed how cold it got as more and more of the sun was covered.
      Hopefully the haze will clear in the next day or two - Jim has been told to use both the preventer and the Ventolin which he usually used around once a year if at all. Really hope he improves as it spoils the walkies for him. Sue

  3. Good morning Sue,
    thank you for the wonderful pictures of the eclipse, here in Bochum the sky was totally cloudy, nothing to see. See you soon.

    1. Morning Gerd, Pity you didn't get to see the eclipse "live" Pleased that you liked the photos - we were so lucky with the weather yesterday - after thinking it was going to be too cloudy.
      Woke up this morning to the wonderful view of a crystal clear Mount's Bay - can see Mousehole really well. Still rather cold in the Northerly wind - might go down to have a walk on the huge beach later today.
      See you soon. Sue
