thinking about archaeology

Archive for January, 2011


My small daughter can’t yet write, but she can handle a Nikon. She woke me just after 8 this morning, and her first excited words demanded that I fetch my camera to photograph the sky. Only later did I realise it looked as it did because of the partial eclipse. “It’s too wide”, she said, “You won’t get it all in”; I had to take the photo as she couldn’t reach high enough for the window. Sadly no solar disc is visible, but this is how dawn appeared in Wiltshire today.
