Solar Eclipse from Langbank

Today was the day we have been anticipating and it's received much in the way of publicity from the media.

Billed as the best solar eclipse in years I personally found it quite disappointing.

Throughout Britain the eclipse reached at least 83% with the darkness peaking around 09:35 -  variations depending on your actual location.

For me it didn't darken much at all and I was expecting it to get quite dark.

These images were taken with 400mm zoom lens and cropped. I used the Lee 'Big Stopper' filter to achieve a dark image and detail as best I could the passage of the moon across the sun.

We will not see another solar eclipse on this scale again until 2026.

More images are available at - - better resolution and options to licence.
