partial eclipse

Partial Eclipse, Chantry Is. Lighthouse, October 23, 2014. A partial eclipse of the Sun by the Moon was underway at sunset on this autumn day. I took the photograph on the shore of Lake Huron as the Sun and Moon set behind Chantry Island, near Southampton. Sunlight is shining through the top of the lighthouse on the island, and reflecting off the glass surfaces. Thin clouds in the west partially obscured the view of the eclipse, but it was bright enough to give a memorable spectacle.
