Focus on This Moment - My Perspective on the Solar Eclipse

This Moment - Soule Mama
A single photo capturing a moment
A simple, special, extraordinary moment
A moment I want to pause, savour and remember

Focus on This - Perspective

GBE2 - Picture Prompt - Kitchen 


On Wednesday 14 November 2012 was the Solar Eclipse that was seen over Australia and New Zealand.

Unfortunately we didn't have the right glasses to see it in action, but we watched it over the internet and I took some photos from inside.

So here it is, my perspective of the solar eclipse - the changing light inside my kitchen.

1 = approx 10:37am - Eclipse hits its peak in Wellington at 76%
2 = 10:59am - starting to get brighter
3 = 11:43am
4 = 11:59am - almost back to normal.




This is the moment
This is the time
When the momentum and the moment
Are in rhyme
Give me this moment
This momentous moment ...

  4. What a great way to record the eclipse. That must have been so strange to see your window get dark!

  5. Fascinating! I remember an eclipse when I was a teen, but it was a partial eclipse, so didn't get so dark. That must have been strange to experience! I'm glad you documented with window light. It put it in perspective for me.

  9. Made me remember a nearly total eclipse several years ago. I ordered pizza for everyone in the office and we went outside and watched the world go into a deep dusk. Street lights even came on. But it was by no means a normal dusk--there was something eerie about it. I like your pictures.
