Bright low sun on the Mersey and a Solar Eclipse…

Spent most of today on a small canvas (See below) based on a reference digital shot taken on Wednesday early morning of the Mersey ferry as it docked at the Wirral with the sun so bright that it bleached out nearly all the colour from the picture. Very strange pale yellow/red light caused by the low sun and mist.

Today as with most of Northern Europe the solar eclipse at 9:30am gave a weird shift in lighting and temperature for around an hour, felt like evening light but was different, still holds plenty of fascination for people today, no wonder that hundreds of years ago when people had no idea of the science behind what was happening that it spread fear and confusion…!
