Solar Eclipse – July 22, 2009

Solar Eclipse - July 22, 2009
This morning I had the chance to grab a few shots of today’s solar eclipse, which was the longest to occur in the twenty-first century and won’t be surpassed in duration for another 123 years.  Although it wasn’t a total eclipse when viewed from Taiwan, I consider myself very lucky to have had a chance to witness it.

The first shot was taken shortly before nine o’clock, while the second shot was taken around 9:40 at its peak.  I held a small filter used to view the eclipse over my telephoto lens to grab these shots.  A few minutes later, I used the Live View function of my camera to grab a shot of the sky without burning my retinas.
