Details:
I took this picture as soon eclipse the deepest stage. Weather conditions were quite difficult: the temperature at -18 °C, wind around 5 m / s and almost completely cloudy near the horizon. At the time of maximum eclipse, the sun was only about 3.5 degrees above horizon. Due to cold weather SLR batteries were shutting down and shooting it was not successful for longer. Fortunately, I took another, smaller camera into my coat pocket, and it agreed to operate until the end of the eclipse.
