Transit of Mercury

Posted by

Mercury passed in front of the sun on Monday. Here is my attempt at capturing the event.

PENTAX K-7 1/8000 second F/8.0 ISO 100 390 mm (35mm equiv.)

Thanks a lot to everyone who commented on my photos, or even stopped by for a visit. The comments have been pouring in pretty fast and I'm finding it increasingly difficult to reply to each individually. I'd rather spend that time in viewing others' photos and commenting there. But I do read each comment individually, and if you ask me something specific, I'll answer that.
