Austin Taylor is a freelance photographer based in Shetland, UK and focuses on creating photographic images that capture the essence of Shetland, including its wildlife, landscape and events as well as of places further afield. Images are available as prints (including mounted or framed) and for licensed use. He is available for commercial and commissioned work in Shetland and elsewhere and runs occasional workshops so that he can share his passion for photography.

PSE Estimated Visibility from Lerwick
This graphic is derived from a photo I took of the total solar eclipse just before totality in Mongolia in 2008, and is similar to what will be visible in Shetland at maximum eclipse. Remember to only view it projected or through eclipse safety glasses.

Below is what it actually looked like - far better!

Solar Eclipse from Gulberwick

Solar Eclipse! I viewed it from Gulberwick. The eclipse here resulted in about 97% of the surface of the Sun being obscured by the Moon, which was a fantastic sight. Unfortunately the weather was somewhat challenging and cloud hid some parts of the show. However, and luckily, the mid eclipse was mostly visible, allowing the above photo just a minute or two past actual maximum eclipse. I have posted a timelapse of the event on my Vimeo channel here.
