10:51 in the morning. Camera ready and I'm all set. Then this massive cloud formation moves in, blocking the sun!
11:00 The moon is now right in the middle of the sun, according to the time-table from yesterdays' newspaper, but I can't see a thing because of these bloody clouds!"
11:01 While I am just about to put the lens-cap back on the camera, I feel the heat of the sun on my skin. I look up and see a relatively small opening appear in the clouds.
I aim my camera and through the viewfinder I spot a beautiful little ring of light.
I only have time to make just 2 pics before the sun disappears again behind the clouds.
Guess I have been incredibly lucky. Not only did the clouds open slightly right in time, those same clouds also acted as a filter as I don't think I would have been able to focuss correctly directly into the sun.
