A total solar eclipse. Now those buggers don't come along every day.

Two weeks ago, Will and I flew up to Cairns for the eclipse. We'd both been at the solar eclipse in Cornwall in 1999, although we didn't know each other then. Will had been lucky enough to see totality, whereas all I got was crazy light and a surreal atmosphere. That was still enough to make me want to go as soon as I learnt there was another eclipse so relatively close to home.

The timing turned out to be really awkward, with us needing to save money for the new house and deal with piles of paperwork for same, but I'm still so glad I went. The area in general is gorgeous, a wealth of natural beauty to choose from ranging from the outback to the ocean, and the eclipse itself was just fucking awesome.

If you're interested, I've written a full account of the eclipse with heaps of photos on my photo blog. Livejournal's scrapbook upload is really broken and sometimes I phaff about to circumvent it, but I can't be arsed today.

In other news, less than a week until we complete on the house... scared that something will go wrong at the last minute, but so far, so good...

Wow, fabulous photos - and really interesting to read the talk-through of taking them, too.

Thanks. I'm hoping it'll help me actually remember for next time (because I'm now an addict so there must be a next time, either Sydney 2028 or maybe Nashville 2017 as I have friends there) but I'm glad it's interesting to others.
