Hot water! - Roman Baths by night

Last night I was lucky enough to be invited to a function at   the Roman Baths and Temple of Sulis in Bath. To be able to visit the site without the usual press of tourists was a real treat.

 I've visited many times during the day but never before in the evening. The Baths really set the scene with flaming torches and a string quartet.

As the evening got cooler you could see the steam rising from the warm water.

The Sacred Spring

This is the overflow from the Sacred Spring. It is underground so being there in the evening made no difference to the light levels. However I couldn't resist a few shots with the new camera! Unfortunately the new "improved" layout means that you can't get as close to the water as previously.

Sulis  Minerva. Cast in bronze covered in layers of gold leaf, it was found in 1727 by chance in a sewer nearby.
