This summer we were able to witness a partial solar eclipse at midnight. It was supposed to be pretty special and all, but to be honest it didnt get my heart pumping any more than any given night with the midnight sun. That said, i had a great time and really enjoyed myself. Took some documentary shots of the eclipse with a longer lens, but it was after the eclipse i really had some great shooting. This one is shot an hour after midnight, and is a remake of a composition i did last year. The light was superb and i took a bunch of shots, but i felt that something was missing. So i waited until the tide came washing into the crack...patience paid off in the end...

The crack you see is really a tiny one. It`s about 20cm wide and a couple of meters long. I had to squeeze myself into this narrow spot to get this compo.

Hope you like it...
