Heading to the desert.
Solar eclipse of December 26, 2019.
I was really looking forward to this natural phenomena as I already had the Blood Moon image from a few years ago and knew exactly what I wanted from this one.
This is the final image, let’s break it down.
We set off early and met up with some other well known photographers from Dubai. My nephew was excited to go see the vast desert. With all that greenery in Scotland one does want a small change. We climbed a few dunes and took some test shots to see what we could get. The part to get right is getting the foreground right, the right dune. The other challenge is to make sure the tripod does not keep sinking or moving on the dune, as this can happen. It wasn’t a major issue we were not shooting long exposure. My setting were at f/14, SS400 and ISO100 with a ten stop ND Filter by Nisi, just to make that little easier.
