The Bay today; solar eclipse, spring equinox, spring tide. And lugworms.

A treble of good things; spring equinox, a low spring tide and a partial solar eclipse.


9.25, what was left of the sun glittering on the receding tide.


 Despite not having the right photographic kit, I managed to get a passable shot of Sol and Selene.


For some it was a low tide and a chance to dig out lugworms (Arenicola marina) for bait. Possibly lugworms dug at the dark of the eclipse on spring equinox have special fish-bewitching powers.
