Solar eclipse

I remember well the last time I didn't see an eclipse. Standing on a pier on Shetland Mainland in 1999, there was the vaguest suggestion of darkness, though it might just have been a cloud marginally thicker than the last rolling across the sky - there was little to be seen so far north that year, unlike this morning, the best images I've seen so far having been taken on the Svalbard Islands.
Clouds obscured the main event...
...But I managed a few pictures...
...the high contrast of these images suggesting a more complete loss of light than was the case, but still, an impressive event and worth watching - I'll be long gone it seems by the time the next one occurs.
