We positioned ourselves on Grassy Hill lookout right beside the lighthouse and along with a handful of other camera enthusiasts we waited for the moment. We couldn't find any solar glasses for sale before the eclipse but fortunately for us one of the Canon professional photographers very kindly handed out glasses for everybody at the lookout. He had travelled from Italy and was an eclipse chaser.

|But the clouds started to rolling in.....|

|This is just interesting. Nothing done to this photo except cropping.|
