Yesterday's solar eclipse was one of those events which everyone wanted to watch, but the fickle British weather always has the last say. I made my way to Glastonbury Tor as did many hundreds of others who climbed to the top to watch. I set up on the side road which runs along the base of the Tor to the North West. 8:25, no view of the sun. Doubts start going through my mind that the clouds are not going to break. Just before 9am a roar comes from the crowds at the top of the Tor. It's the sun, or a glimpse of it trying its best to shine through the thick murk above us. As 9:25 approaches the sun is still shrouded by the high murk, but can be clearly seen through it, which happens to be a blessing in disguise at no filters are needed to correct the exposure. Shooting with two cameras, D800 with 70-300mm lens and D5100 on a 400mm lens with 2x converter, I have both bases covered. One for close-ups of the sun and another for getting a view of the Tor with the eclipsed sun above. By 9:45 the sun is emerging from behind the moon and the clouds and it is too bright to do any more, but I know I have the shot I wanted in the bag.
