010204 - Solar Eclipse
In 1972 there was a solar eclipse off the coast of Nova Scotia. I was on an eclipse cruise
to capture this event. Every inch of deck space with covered with tripods, cameras and
telescopes. The cruise ship, The Olympia of Greek registry, had special stabilizers
to keep the boat motionless duing the eclipse. The advantage of a cruise liner is that it
could manuever at sea to avoid any cloud cover. As it was, it was clear from horizon to
horizon. By the way, the next solar eclipse in the United States is in 2017.
The image was captured with a Konica T3, 300mm f/4.5, High Speed Ektachrome, Vivitar tripod.
