Partial Solar Eclipse


Samuel and I were fortunate enough to see the partial solar eclipse this morning on our way to Aberdeen. This photo was taken for the BBC in Aberdeenshire but I have to say at 9.15 this morning we had no clouds just a VERY bright sun and a tiny bit of moon!! At first we couldn't see anything as it was far too bright but John said to make a pin hole in a piece of paper and look through that. You know what? It worked and no sun blindness afterwards. Cool or what?

  2. WOW - I didn't even know there had been one today - mmmmmmmm maybe that was because I was still in my bed at 10am - going to be hard going back to work on Thursday, I'm quite used to my 10 o'clockers!!!

  5. Hi Liz Sweetie...
    Happy New Year and what a beautiful share today. I love this shot you captured through the lens of your camera. It is gorgeous.

    It has been cold here in the desert the last few weeks, and I want my sun back. I am not accustomed to the heat at all. I love the warmth on my bones. I need sunshine. We actually got a little today. I was SO grateful.

    I pray that you all are well. Looks like you have a whole new blog for the new year. It is SO beautiful sweet one.

    Hope you have a great weekend. Many hugs and SO much love sweetie, Sherry
