Eclipsed.

Or I should say clouded. This morning a solar eclipse occurred. So I understand. Heavy cloud prevailed at the beginning of the eclipse in Dublin. I walked along the Liffey hoping to glimpse this cosmic event.

I admit it did get rather dim. I made a variety of cloudy day images.

During the darkest part of the eclipse, I made this view of Grattan Bridge. Could be an ordinary dull day.

About 10am, thinking I’d missed the event, I gave up and went for breakfast. I’m told that about that time the clouds parted and the sun (with moon shadow) made a fleeting appearance in the sky over Dublin. Ironically I watched the remainder of the event on Sky News in the cafe where I enjoyed a full Irish breakfast.

Wrong location, bad luck, and poor timing.

(Apparently they had a great view on the Faroe Islands.)

  1. That does look a bit dull.
    We were fortunate in Belfast – there was a break in the clouds just before 9.00am.
    Was amazing to see how much the temperature dropped during the event.
