A Partial Eclipse with Clouds

This time is not the moon but a very thick layer of clouds what obscures the Sun making it look like a partial solar eclipse.


This is a real single shot, I was really surprised to see the sun half obscured by clouds I think this is only possible at sunset or sunrise when the light of the sun is diminished by the atmosphere.
