The solar eclipse of 2015.

In Denmark the solar eclipse was partial, covering 81-85 percent of the Sun when it peaked at 10:50. Copenhagen was completely overcast, so I took the train down to Rødvig on a chance that the clouds might be less thick there. They were! As the train rolled into the station two hours later, the shifting clouds now and then revealed the eclipse already in progress. I set up my equipment overlooking the beach and the sea and started taking pictures. After about an hour the heavy clouds from the north catched up with me and I had to stop, but that was after the peak and with 300 pictures under my belt I was pretty happy.
