Here’s wishing the weather is great in the North Atlantic!
While not statistically likely at this time of year, there’s still hope that dwellers of the wild land of Spitsbergen and the Faroe Islands have enjoyed enough breaks in the cloud to witness the passing of the moon in fron of the sun (see map of totality here).
Back in La France, no such luck. Except for a few brief events that ever-watchfull DS team manage to capture using their SONY A7r cameras, Zeiss Loxia 50/2, Zeiss OTUS 85/1.4 and Leica Apo-Telyt-M 135/3.4 lenses.
Here are the photographs. Please be sure to ooh and ahh 😉
The thing with cloud eclipses is that clouds are around … And we like photographing clouds. It’s one of our nicer quirks. So here are 4 photographs mixing clouds, the sun and our moon in an event that won’t repeat itself in this area for a few years …
