Nice one Mark :thumbsup: I really like these sunset images of the transit and the clouds add another dimension. While I am very thankful to have captured the whole event from start to finish a small part of me would have liked to have it end/start on the horizon so that I could get some interesting foreground structures in some shots.

Sadly i never got around to getting my hands on a solar filter, but i watched it through a pair of special glasses. Great job! And like RayM0506 said..love the clouds wich adds to the image:-)

Thanks so much! Sorry you only got to watch it through eclipse glasses, they just do not do it the justise it deserves. Still better than not seeing it at all.

Thanks. The clouds started getting in the way about 5mins before sunset here. They did offer a few good views though. This is actually my fave of the bunch other than 2nd Contact.
