Photography – Partial Solar Eclipse 2012

This past week the world reveled in the annular solar eclipse. Even though it was raining and cloudy here in the Pacific Northwest we still got a view of the eclipse before it was hidden entirely behind the clouds. The pictures below are from out front porch and do not justice, but we tried and the kids thought it was neat.
