Eclipse 1999, Malton, (Sunny) North Yorkshire,

These pics were taken outside our camera shop in Malton. The camera was an Olympus OM1 (Very Old), and the lens was a 300mm Vivitar Mirror Lens. Kodak 100asa Gold Film was used at f22 and 1000th sec. The top two were in open sky and the sun was to bright at the exposure. I thought the flare in the shot showed the partial eclipse beautifully and the colour make them into nice pics. The bottom two were shot with the sun behind cloud, thus making the exposure about right. Hope you enjoyed the event and I hope you to got some half decent shots...... David Wakeley
