Day 21 - 20th March 2015 - Windsor Racecourse to Runneymede

My second hiking day this week, the day of the spring equinox and the day of the solar eclipse which reached its maximum of about 85% at 09:30. Sadly the eclipsed sun wasn't visible at my location, too much featureless grey cloud, though its passing was apparent by the marked dulling down by about 4 stops (according to my camera's light meter) of the already grey morning. It would have been fortuitous if my arrival at Runneymede had coincided exactly with the 800th anniversary of Magna Carta in June - but I wasn't inclined to slow down. Not particularly photographically inspiring today - so I've even included a shadow selfie, just to make up the numbers! This segment of the hike passes under the flight path into Heathrow so the whole day was one continuous drone of planes landing at the rate of something like one every minute or so.
