Partial Solar Eclipse Viewed from Talakag

Did you see the partial solar eclipse this morning? It was amazing!  It came into view through the trees in our garden in Talakag.  I didn’t have a smoked glass or a piece of film to see the eclipse with so I improvised and used a black bin liner to cover the lens of my digital camera.  These pictures were taken at 8:45am from our back garden.
