The Sun in Bahrain rose with the eclipse itself. The Annular Solar eclipse was partial. As the event was during the sunrise captured the scenes without the solar filter itself . During the phenomenon the colour of the sky varied from dark pink to red and to orange. As the sun was rising up I had to use the 300mm F2.8 to cover the sea, the ships and the clouds. I was attracted by the reflections on the clouds and so shot this portrait frame. This was a hand held shot and the setting I used was ISO:200 @ shutter speed of 1/1000 sec to avoid shaking of the image. As the event was in the sunrise l did not use the solar filter.
