Solar Eclipse 2016 - photographed in Singapore, Bedok Jetty at 07:46 am (GMT+8) 09 Mar 2015

The difficulty of catching celestial objects with foreground subject is well known to photographers as well as astronomers. Having timed the shot with a once in a lifetime event like solar eclipse is almost inconceivable.

Camera: Canon EOS700D

Lens: EF300mm f/2.8L IS II USM | 300mm • 1/320sec • f/5.6 • ISO200 and EF 2x III Extender.

Filter: Thousand Oaks Optical Glass Solar Filter - Type 2+

Camera was attached to Celestron Telescope Mount (tracking the Sun) with custom made adapter.

For curious minds.. it was Singapore Airlines.. (on time!!!)
