Hi Stephen, we were in Ireland on August 11, 1999 and saw part of an eclipse at Spiddal, Galway Bay. Unfortunately it was a cloudy day, but we did see it through the clouds. It was a full eclipse in Cornwall that day.
This is a sharp image - no clouds spoiling your view here,

Nice Stephen...I just knew someone wold try this...I'll bet others will post as well..but this is first..there is a sort of mist, haze or clouds like appearance. this gives your shot it's own personality instead of straight on clear...and interesting and more than likely unplanned perspective...BTW I haev the magazine with your image posted. Mike sent me a copy a couple months ago. Nice job!
Bonjour Stephen, your are lucky!! well caught!! I like the cloudy sky on the left! Best regards, Didier.

Sure, I expected this shot from you my friend! Great day for every astro-fan and great weather to observe this event. Great photo, I like grim mood of your it. Well composed with lots of space on left side filled by clouds. I hope we'll send our next pictures of similiar event in 2011 :-)

We didn't get to see the eclipse in the western US but now I feel like I did see it after viewing your picture. This is just perfect - not a cloud in the sky and a beautiful sight. You captured the eclipse perfectly.

A technically excellent image of the partial eclipse, elevated to higher level by the clouds, a really wonderful image.
