Misty solar eclipse 2015-03-20

perfect moments, Photo of the day, Photography

Everybody was waiting for this Solar Eclipse taking place on spring equinox.

All the special protection glasses were sold out.

I woke up this morning and I could only see mist surrounding my home. Being optimistic I set up my camera and went out. Luckily the sun (and the moon) appeared from time to time through the thick fog, no protection needed 🙂

here are the images. High resolution files can be seen  here on flickr

Some images of my night stroll through the woods. Even though we only had a half moon it enlightened the snow covered trees in a magic light. The white powder reflected like uncountable diamonds. It was great to brave the freezing cold elements 🙂
