Annular Eclipse 2012

On May 21, 2012 an annular solar eclipse was visible from Japan to the west coast of the USA.
I was fortunate enough to take these pictures at Gokuraku Temple in Kawachinagano, Osaka.
It was a truly spectacular sight, though there was a bit of cloud in the sky (which added to the pictures), for the most part the skies were cloud free.

 Annular Eclipse maximum.


 

Not everything was exposed properly:
Light leaking through the aperture blades with lens flares, but I still like it.
