Solar Eclipse

It is nice to be back to the regular routine after the last few hectic days.

 

This shot of the solar eclipse took some effort: sun was playing hide and seek; I was not in my home ground; we were on the road and not in our car. But it all came out well finally.

 

We had travelled quite a bit during the eclipse and I was able to catch the scene just as the day ended. I had almost given up when we reached the town we had camped in, but thanks to my wife's prodding we rushed to the town beach for a last attempt. Boy, was it worth it! I am told solar eclipse during sunset is rare.

 

Thanks to Steve (skyburst) for the encouragement to try the shot.
