We had a partial eclipse of the sun here in the UK last weekend. There was a strange, hazy light, and we headed up the hill behind our house to see if anything dramatic would happen, like a dark shadow covering the valley below. Disappointingly, nothing seemed to happen at all. We didn't have those eclipse glasses or use a pin-hole camera, but a friend was more lucky and managed to take this photo using eclipse glasses in front of her camera lens.

So, we just took some quick outfit snaps while we waited for the darkness that never came. These photos aren't retouched as you can tell from the amount of litter in some of these shots - why do people think a scenic look out point is a bin?!
