    Was very bright over our part of the country, crystal clear, not a cloud anywhere.

    I got one clear shot around 5.40pm but nothing during the eclipse.

    I think I inadvertently nudged the mode dial whilst moving the camera and tripod in the dark

    What I find hard to understand is that there was a full moon and at the same time there was a king tide where we were at Waihi Beach.

    I was taught at school that the moon controlled the tides and the moon's gravity pulls the sea water toward the moon creating a low tide. When the moon moves away there is no gravity so no pull and so that results in a high tide. Is that not correct?

    But no. I did not get a shot as I was asleep in my bed.

    The ocean bulges directly under the moon causing a high tide, and also on the opposite side of the planet for a reason I forget. Or to put it another way towards the moon is up, or higher.

    I imagine that without the counterbalancing effect the effect might be similar to a hammer throw, or a giant particle accelerator. Hang on, guys, it's a hell of a ride ...
