All images on eclipse day were taken with a tripod mounted Canon T70 and a 35 mm wide angle lens (Carl Zeiss Flektogon f/2.4 mounted via an adapter) on Ektachrome 100 HC colour slide film (which was pushed by 1.5 stops at the processing stage). Exposure was determined by partial metering from the landscape with the near totality frames consistently underexposed by 0.5 stops. Re-composition of each frame resulted in a delay of about 2 sec between metering and shutter release and a total time of about 5 sec between the shots. Aperture was fixed at f/4 which gave an exposure time of 1/15 sec at the start of the Totality Sequence ( 50 sec before second contact). During totality the metered time exceeded the maximum exposure time of the camera of 2 sec resulting in a corresponding underexposure which however only emphasized the near-nighttime darkness at this stage.
The 'Day Before' -image was taken with a zoom lens at about the same focal length but from a slightly different position.
My observation point was exactly 200 m above sea level (about 100 m above the town). The closest parts of the landscape (town) in the images are about 1 km away, the coast 6 km and the theoretical horizon from this height is at 50 km.
The direction of view was chosen such that the center of the image was roughly tangential to the shadow cone as the latter was closing in, i.e. one was looking into the shadow in the left part of the picture and out of it in the right (towards the end and after totality the shadow cone was outside the field of view (in fact behind the camera) as the symmetry had reversed) (see Map
for an illustration)
