The eclipse took place this morning over a misty Bath, the perfect chance to play with my 50mm prime lens, the latest edition to my bag. Usually you would reach for a long zoom lens and filters to take detailed shots of the halo around the moon but with a 50mm I was looking to take some arty shots with some context.

So I headed down past the weir towards The Rec, the home of Bath Rugby. By this time the light started to dim and coupled with an eerie empty stadium created a moody atmosphere.
