Eclipse Shots

Eclipse Shots

I may not post tomorrow, so I’m putting this up today.

In looking up a few things related to eclipses (and finding a set of shades that haven’t been refunded to me because amazons retailers didn’t source their stuff right despite it supposedly being a brand that was on the NASA list – damned chinese knock-offs), I stumbled into a rather unique video.

It turns out that the timing and dates of most eclipses are such that they don’t occur over snow-covered mountains suitable for skiing, but one a few years back would just happen to cross a small patch of land in a desolate part of Norway.

So the skiers and photographers set out, and in the process captured a literally once-in-a-lifetime series of shots requiring not only a rare event – total eclipses in general, but one going over suitable terrain – but cooperation of the weather during the event.
