Eclipsed Sun above the Nové Mlýny Lake

This beautiful reflection of eclipsed Sun in the Nové Mlýny Lake was taken by my wife Zuzana from Stolová hora (Table Mountain) near Mikulov short time before the Sun disappeared behind clouds. These clouds were being continuously formed on the windward side of the mountain and dissolved again, from our point of view, near the horizon. Clear sky without any cloud was hundreds of kilometers around our observing place - shortly I had chosen really the "right" place.
