Partial solar eclipse - this Friday (20th March)

Recommended Posts

Thought I'd mention it in case anyone wasn't aware, bonus points for any creepy window shots at an abandoned asylum during a partial eclipse surely? :D

07:41 - 11:50 UTC/GMT, 40-90% blocked from most of UK, 90%+ way oop north.

More info here.

I'm historically dogshit and capturing any kind of sunlight coming through an asylum window, so i massively welcome the moon making it duller and easier for me to shoot this friday night lol :D

Get a screen of some sort with pinholes in it & it'll project little crescents rather than spots. Could be quite nice anywhere as north as us...

If you're a decent photographer, so that's me ruled out then :grin2:

I’ve had a perfect sky here in Germany, no clouds! :)

I've took the photos with aperture 40 and aperture priority mode (exposure time about 1/20 - 1/2000 second) with using a neutral density filter ND3.0 (x1000).

I've made exposure series, taken with tripod and remote shutter release. Lens: 300 mm (the photos are detail enlargements).

The maximum darkening of the sun on my point was 78%.



























Unfortunately the sun was to light, so you can’t see the darkening on the next two photos.

      Had a look at this place while in the area back in March. The cars where the main attraction for me and they did not disappoint. Excellent examples of cars left to rust and rot until they finally fall in on themselves. The rest of the site consists of stripped huts with some being more interesting and less bear than others. A relaxed and pleasant half hour. Visited with non member Paul.
      Known as Prisoner of war camp 116 was built in 1941 and located in Hatfield heath, just outside Bishops Stortford.
      The camp mainly housed Italians until about 1943-1944 where it held German and Austrian prisoners aswell. It was known at one point the camp housed 750 prisoners
      The prisoners had a relatively easy lifestyle here (Unlike the English prisoners in the German POW Camps) and could do voluntary work in the near by farm land in Harlow, they were picked up by the Land Girls and each prisoner had an allotted farm where they would work at.











      Thanks For Looking

      explored with wevsky and urban ginger ...
      a big to humpa and his cousin
      As wevsky explained things didn't quite go to plan on this trip, but saying that cars can be replaced good friends cant ! so all good in the end . After a flying visit to Amsterdam on the way through we push on to Berlin . We arrived at beelitz early morning and as we had been told of different things to look out for we expected someone to be on site. After coming out the third building and bumping into a group of seven German explores. We exchanged a few locations and they told us that secca wasn't a problem i didn't really get anoth pics to show the place in all its glory but no doubt it wont be long before were heading back that way really need a couple of days to cover it properly ...
      on with the pics ....

      thanks for looking ...

      Visited with Urban Ginger,SpaceInvader and met up with Humpa and his cousin..and a few random German bods while there
      This trip was supposed to be a day or so longer and we had a full on list to get thru.
      That all went tits up after a car crash bad enough to write off two cars.The insurance company mugged us off and although saying they would get the car moved it was down to the breakdown cover people to get us home..
      The breakdown cover said it was the other way round and when we tried to get back to insurance company the automated message informed UG that business was closed till Monday morning ,so we where stranded..Thankfully Humpa and co. came back and got us to the hotel which we had booked for that night and after getting quoted 800 for train tickets for us to get to Calais or a hire car for 600 euros we where getting rather stressed as we didn't have a huge amount of money..UG' family to the rescue and easy jet tickets where paid for in the uk and we had our way home and could get some sleep before we had to leave.Big thanks to silver rainbow for the lift back from the airport..
      So all in all bloody stressful few days after a ten hour drive to Germany..The upside was a visit to Amsterdam to check out the tulips and the women in the little rooms with big windows where very friendly:)
      History from wicki
      On with some pics

      This was another one of those explores for me that had fond memories attached to it, This place was most recently used as a Motor Museum which was closed back in 2006, In my child hood my Gran used to take me here from time to time the place still smels exactly as it did back then, funny how old oil lingers for ever !, History more than covered by Wevsky In his Report viewtopic.php?f=11&t=1959
      Visited with Space Invader, Morgan, Obscurity & Vickie, So on with the Pics !

      Good Explore this, Shame its all buttoned up tight again !
