The Sun

Sunsets and sunrises are famous and atmospheric sujets. Solar eclipses are very fascinating. If you had the luck to see one total solar eclipse live you know what I am talking about. The pictures here can only represent a small part of the real impression. I have seen three total solar eclipses (1999 in France, 2002 in Australia and 2006 in Turkey) and many partial eclipses. Partial eclipses are a specially nice sujet if they occur while sunrise or sunset. See pictures of the eclipses in the album Solar Eclipses. February 1991 to August 2012, 15 photos.
