Overcast Solar Eclipse

Image of the eclipse in a pinhole camera
The day started out clear but a thin layer of cloud quickly formed above St Andre. A pity, because a solar eclipse was due this morning. There were clear skies in other directions, just not above the village. So all in all it was a bit undramatic. The eclipse wasn't quite total, so things didn't go dark. It felt colder than usual, but this was a cloudy day in March. In the end, I could sort of see the eclipse with my makeshift pinhole camera, and managed to get a picture of the image. Some more pics.
