One of my enduring memories was of the 1999 eclipse that I viewed from Romania. The thing that struck me most was that most photos show close ups of the eclipsed sun. The real magic of the event only becomes apparent when you see it in the context of the landscape. I'll try and hunt down some old photos of this and scan them in.
