Éiclips Éireannach

Bha mi anns Uachtar Ard an dè airson an éiclips. Bha e latha gu math. I enjoyed seeing the eclipse and we had fantastic viewing weather all through the maximum, with clouds suddenly covering the sky about 3/4 of the way through.

When I got up the sun was already notch-shaped, and was projecting a superb cresent shadow from a tall tree onto the wall of the white shed. As the sun rose higher, a different bush put hundreds of tiny crescents onto the end wall of the house.

For about 10 minutes around the maximum it got chilly, and the light became disturbingly grey and washed out, like a poor quality old colour film.

It was a perfect end to my trip to Oughterard, to see such a beautiful eclipse with friends. Below are some of my photos from yesterday morning.
