20 March 15      Eclipse Day.  Mostly cloudy but a bit sunny when it mattered.

Taken with a Lumix GF2 plus 200-300mm lens fitted with two polarising filters
with the angle of polarisation at right-angles to cut down the light.  This gave the
blue effect but also cut down the light a bit too much, which meant a slow
shutter speed and some blurring due to camera shake.

This was a better effort, at about maximum eclipse.
Nikon D300 plus 80-400mm lens and some cloud acting as a useful filter.
