Annular Solar Eclipse from Regina, Saskatchewan

I showed some of my neighbours the eclipse as I took photos, and here it is for those who missed it, or wanted to see it the easier/safer way (second hand using indirect viewing).

-The lens flare underneath, on the roof, blows me away.

-I think a bird flew into this frame. The lens flare under the sun shows the eclipse more clearly than the direct view.

-Until a neighbour came with a makeshift filter, this was how I was watching the progression, using a pinhole projector onto a white screen (folded envelope). Total cost $0.

-I may have been using 3 layers of sunglasses to take this shot. Not the best sort of filter for a digital camera, and I was a little worried about damage to the sensor, but it seems to have worked. The lens flare “bokeh” (as Photojojo calls them) at the bottom gives an excellent view.
