This photo was taken at around 7:24 a.m.with an ND8 filter attached to the lens, a few minutes early/before the actual “ring of fire” . I wasn’t able to see the ring of fire live because I had to prepare Vito for school since he leaves before 8 a.m. I just watched on TV! 😀 The next eclipse of this kind will be seen only in Hokkaido in 2030 and, in a large portion of Japan, after 300 years!
I am able to post this now because I’m on leave from work today because of a sore throat…and it’s not because of the eclipse.
