Port Gentile - Gabon, 3 November 2013

Total Solar Eclipse

The Total Solar Eclipse in Gabon was a real photographic challenge. It was the first time to observe and record totality on board a small boat. The boat brought me and 3 other friends colleagues of mine in the open Atlantic Ocean, where sharks were possibly swimming around us, while the waves kept moving the boat continuously. Photography under such conditions is proved to be extremely difficult. However, the result was great by all means.

We were all grateful to observe this total eclipse and record local environmental changes (temperature and humidity measurements).
