Sunrise 4:46AM at Broadbeach Queensland prior to partial solar eclipse - 14/11/2012 (Processed image)
This was a total eclipse event further north in Cairns, Australia. However, being at a conference (Gartner ITxpo 2012) on the Queensland Gold Coast was far better than being at home in Perth (two hours further West over the horizon), so I was quite pleased to have the opportunity to capture an ~83% eclipse, conveniently timed 06:00-08:00 local time, allowing me to get to the first conference session at 8:30!
