Solar Eclipse from Titahi Bay

So the Solar Eclipse on Friday evening was a bit of a fizzer.

We abandoned going up Mt Kau Kau as it was simply too windy and headed to Titahi Bay instead where it was still quite windy but at least we could stand up!

The eclipse itself was only a very partial eclipse, and occurred right on dusk when there was a cloud layer on the horizon over the South Island so some of the eclipse happened behind that cloud from our vantage point.

Here is the best of my photos of the eclipse. The eclipse is the small slice missing from the sun on the upper left hand side.

A high quality version of this image can be found in on 500px.
