    Far too much cloud cover, but managed to get a few shots through the clouds.

    Pretty boring photo's to look at really, but still a fairly rare occurrence and I was pleased to be able to see it

    Anybody else get some pics ?... add 'em on here for us all to see.

    Nope, fog and clouds prevented us from seeing anything. Unlike the predictions...

    Nice pics, it was clear in Brum/B'ham but I had no camera or large piece of cardboard to reflect on to, but quick glances at it, here it had a similar amount of coverage apart form the coronaec glow - hence the squinting glances.

    Nice pics.


    We had just enough cloud to be able to see it with the naked eye without pain, it looked just like the moon on a misty night, slightly strange.

    I had to laugh at the radio commentary speaking to people around the UK and asking each one what it looked like! If you can see it it looks like a ffffffing eclipse!

    Clear here but wasn't that much too see to be fair, didn't seem any change in the light + didn't have the camera as was going to an exam...

    Good shots though Gary!
