Having just set up a new blog, I intended my first post after the introductory one to be about the recent eclipse. While many people enjoyed clear skies on Friday 20th March 2015, many others did not. The sun did not break through the mist or murk until later in the morning. Looking on the bright side, there was no chance of damaged eyesight in our immediate locality!
Neither mist nor eclipses last. They could be described as ephemeral, fitting this week’s daily post photography challenge. My photo was taken close to the darkest moment, while travelling as a passenger along a back lane. The birds had stopped singing and there was an atmosphere of suspense. Then as the sky lightened little by little (thick cloud notwithstanding) everything began to return to normal.
People were disappointed at not seeing the eclipse as two or three hours later the day had changed.
