2012 Annular Solar Eclipse

Yesterday’s Eclipse might not be mind-boggling, but it was definitely worth getting up at 5 in the morning.  My photos aren’t spectacular but it was fun to watch the sun rise through intermittent clouds that you can see in some of the pictures.  I was only able to photograph the first half since I had to run off to teach for the rest of the day.  I rigged up my Canon D7 on a tripod with a 70-300mm zoom and had to hold a jury rigged filter made from half of sun viewing glasses.  It worked though.  Hope you enjoy.
