Thanks all for your kind visit & support! Have a wonderful day ahead... =)


Selepas aje punch card pagi tadi, saya menyinggah di tepi Tasik Huffaz bila melihatkan cahaya matahari yang mengujakan menyimbah cantik melatari Masjid DQ dan ketenangan tasik yang mempersonakan! Dengan kamera yang tengah meragam, tawakkal je lah saya menge-shot beberapa keping gambar, ada rezeki rupanya, 'lekat' juga gambar yang diambil!


Subhanallah; pujilah Si Pencipta keindahan ini, jangan dipuji insan yang menyampaikannya...

Last night we were able to witness a partial solar eclipse at midnight. It was supposed to be pretty special and all, but to be honest it didnt get my heart pumping any more than any given night with the midnight sun. That said, i had a great time and really enjoyed myself. Took some documentary shots of the eclipse with a longer lens, but it was after the eclipse i really had some great shooting. This one is shot an hour after midnight, and is a remake of a composition i did last year. The light was superb and i took a bunch of shots, but i felt that something was missing. So i waited until the tide came washing into the crack...patience paid off in the end...


The crack you see is really i tiny one. It`s about 20cm wide and a couple of meters long. I had to squeeze myself into this narrow spot to get this compo.


Hope you like it...and feedback is appreciated...



the light of the solar eclipse


As promised posting a few more shots of the Solar Eclipse I shot yesterday .Shot the Partial Solar Eclipse from my balcony. Have various stages of the same .Will post them .The reason for such a hype is its a total SOlar Eclipse visible in India, though I could see only partial being on the penumbra rather than umbra of the solar eclipse . Its an experience and I am so glad i could see this once in lifetime event. This started at 5.54 India time and ended at 7.18 India time. This the longest Solar eclipse of the 21st Century and only visible in the eastern parts of the world like India, China, Bangladesh, Japan etc . Many parts of the country had monsoon clouds so not many people could see this event . I was just lucky .


Handheld camera phone shot pointed down the eyepiece of a celestron telescope with a solar filter. About 2 out of 20 attempts were successful for me

This happens 1 second after the end of the total phase. Another 2 seconds and I needed to put the filter again! No doubt how powerful is our sun! =D

The tunnel ahead was taken right outside Lake Mills on the Glacial Drumlin bike trail in Wisconsin that stretches 52 miles from Cottage Grove to Waukesha, basically Madison to Milwaukee. The trial takes you through Cottage Grove, Deerfield, London, Lake Mills, Jefferson, Helenville, Sullivan, Dousman, Wales, and Waukesha.

another shot of the ring of fire


this photo is part of this time-lapse

Canary Wharf during the recent solar eclipse. Unfortunately it was a bit too cloudy and smoggy to fully appreciated!

This morning from behind the Cocoa Beach Pier. There was a band of clouds low on the horizon so we were lucky to see it.

One of the millions taken this morning.

Groningen, the Netherlands.


It was only a few minutes, in a small area between the clouds

Just messing with some of the other eclipse images from last Friday. This is a composite (obviously) with the moon shot a few days later on the 26th March, slightly rotated. The moon was stacked from 10 separate frames to reduce noise.


Both images shot with Panagor 400mm F5.6 (FD mount), Canon 2X Teleconverter (FD) and EF M-FD Adaptor.

I almost missed a clear shot of the sun by alerting another photographer on this event. Did not realize it was eclipse night till I saw a weird look to the sun in my viewfinder. Shot at Spaulding Rd in Elgin IL, looking down the old Milwaukee Rd tracks (now owned by Metra, and used by Canadian Pacific) to the setting sun in the West

Taken in the center of Bonnybridge by the Bonny banks.


I love this kind of photography above all others I'm constantly in awe of the majesty of the night sky.


This shot took an hour and a half and during that time the clouds rolled over completely obscuring the sky; as can be seen in the trails. The glow in the lower half of the frame is light pollution reflected from the clouds.

The 01/08/2008 solar eclipse happened during the sunset, giving amazing colors to the clouded sky !

Qutab Minar, New Delhi, Dec 2011.


A total solar eclipse occurred on March 20, 2015. A total solar eclipse occurs when the Moon’s apparent diameter is larger than the Sun’s, blocking all direct sunlight, turning day into darkness.


I was in the Lake District on March 20th and was walking by Lake Windermere as the eclipse occurred. I shot many images across the Lake as the light changed. I have been to the Lake many times at different times of the day and year, but I’ve never seen lighting conditions like those during the eclipse.


This shot shows a yacht on the lake in a subtle monochromatic scene where the sky and the lake merge into one. This is as the camera shot the scene. No retouching.

I got it just in time before the clouds rolled in. *Whew*! =)


No filters were used.

Shot of the sun's reflection during the Solar Eclipse on 22nd July 2009. The whole atmosphere looks so different during that time also the temperature seems to cooler.

Time lapse image sequence of the solar eclipse over ruins of Fort Churchill in the Nevada desert. All the images used were taken from the camera (with an intervalometer) in a fixed composition without any movement of the camera or tampering of the suns position relative the landscape. The eclipse related sun images were captured with a solar filter. They were then stacked together and blended in photoshop to create a single image as shown here. Just after the maximum eclipse, clouds moved in and obscured the view of the sun for the second half. But it ended up resulting in a nice sunset that I was able to incorporate in the final set of exposures after removing the solar filter.

The Shot I never thought I'd be able to make with all those clouds! Here is the entire eclipse sequence as seen from Salt Lake City, Utah USA May 20, 2012

Two wide angle 11 shot HDR views were merged to show the Sun's position just before and after the eclipse with 16 individual eclipse images overlayed to show how the moon moved across the Sun.

Got a few photos of the eclipse. Unfortunately, as you can see, the sun set before it got to ring of fire here in Oklahoma.

Solar Eclipse of 15th January 2010 and the best Solar Eclipse of the Millennium captured using an customized Aluminized polyester foil piece on-top of my UV filter


Camera: Canon EOS 500D

Exposure: 0.011 sec (1/90)

Aperture: f/5.6

Focal Length: 250 mm

ISO Speed: 200

Exposure Bias: 0 EV

White Balance: Manual

Photoshop Quality: 6 (so that i can upload for flickr without much time)


Location: Maldives, Male' (usfasgandu - near Darubaruge)

Date and Time (Original): 2010:01:15 12:40:00+07:00


The camera settings was for a cloudy shot and hence the low aperture, lower shutter speed with a bit of higher ISO.

Solar eclipse, Hinode-style!


The Hinode satellite observing our sun captured images of the moon traversing the face of the sun during a solar eclipse this week.


On Wednesday, July 22, 2009, a total eclipse of the Sun was visible from within a narrow corridor that traverses half of Earth. The path of the Moon's umbral shadow began in India and crossed through Nepal, Bangladesh, Bhutan, Myanmar and China. After leaving mainland Asia, the path crossed Japan's Ryukyu Islands and curved southeast through the Pacific Ocean where the maximum duration of totality reached 6 minutes and 39 seconds. A partial eclipse is seen within the much broader path of the Moon's penumbral shadow, which includes most of eastern Asia, Indonesia, and the Pacific Ocean.

A partial solar eclipse sets through the tree tops of a mountain ridge as seen from Elden Springs Road, northeast of Flagstaff, Arizona — October 23, 2014. The image was shot through an Orion XT8 8-inch f/5.9 telescope fitted with a white light mylar solar filter and a 32 mm eyepiece for 37.5X magnification.
