So there was a total solar eclipse today and because of Ireland’s position on the planet, we could only see it as a partial eclipse. Unfortunately, it was very cloudy in Ireland. As in, completely overcast.
Initially, I was gutted when I thought that I wasn’t going to get to see it but just as I was about to give up, there was a break in the clouds and this majestic sight unfolded before my eyes.
This is what I captured. I’m pretty happy with the end result.
I shot in RAW so I was able to recover some good detail that was otherwise lost in the highlights. If I had shot it as a JPG, these details may not have been recoverable and parts of the brighter cloud would have been blown out.
Camera settings that I used: f/16, 1/1000s, ISO 200.
Lens: Canon EF75-300
Body: Canon 6D
