A wonderful sunrise with a partial eclipse

A partial eclipse, a rare and quite exciting event,
took place some days ago in Vienna,
on 4 January 2011.
I know, I'm very late posting my pictures,
but I'm a very lazy blogger lately...


When I left my apartment in the morning, the sun rose,
painting the clouds orange in a most spectacular way,


reflecting and thus multiplying the golden glow
as if anticipating that soon the sun would be partially hidden by the shadow of the moon.


I found a place to see the partial eclipse
between the high-rise buildings of the city.


ARed Cross alu blanket (black picture) and some coloured transparent plastic folders (red picture) had to suffice to filter the gleaming sunlight.

Spectacular in all respects Maria ! ! !
Both the spectacle of the vanishing sun and the wonderfully romantic ballet from the New Year's concert. I missed the concert so it was doubly nice to see a bit of it here. Thank you.

Have a wonderful New Year in your beautiful city

Hugs and Blessings . . . Arija
