3/20 annular eclipse I

{i tried sending all the pix in a single email to this blog, but G doesn't seem to like that ... sooo, i'm forced to fire them out in a serial sequence of posts.}

the sun shots were all done with my panasonic subcompact lumix on a normal semi-automatic setting (resting on a tiny gorilla pod) ... using digital zoom to get a larger picture.

 i did nothing more than hold "look at the sun directly with your naked eyes" filter up to the lens (which looks like just thick mylar sheetto me).  worked surprisingly well.

all these were shot in st. george, UT.  not a single cloud anywhere in the sky.  no haze.  super nice day.  perfect conditions.
