It was a holiday with a difference for a Derbyshire photographer who travelled to America to watch the first solar eclipse in 99 years.

John Yates, from Buxton, made the 4,577 mile trip to Idaho Falls to capture the once in a lifetime event on his canon 1300d 200mm zoom camera with a solar filter over the end.
