Patience is a virtue

As a majority of people should know by now, parts of the UK and Europe witnessed solar eclipse today.

I awoke this morning at about 8:30am and rolled myself begrudgingly out of my nice warm bed. It was depressingly overcast here in Totnes, Devon. I shrugged my shoulders and put the coffee machine on.

Whilst the coffee machine was percolating it’s tasty black goodness, I ventured into the back garden to assess the situation. It was thickly overcast and not looking very good to be honest. Meh. I go back inside to the coffee machine, in full knowledge that at least that won’t disappoint me.

I head back out again, my 2 vices in my hands (coffee and nicotine) and have another look. Above our roof I can see patchy blue sky, of course, the sun is in the opposite direction. My spirits lifted by this I set up my tripod and camera and played the waiting game. Roughly an hour later I was rewarded for my patience.
