dappled half-moon suns

We let the leaves be our pinhole camera and saw these suns at the half-moon stage.

half-moon suns

ETA... there are many, many beautiful photos out there of scything crescent suns dappling the ground--go take a look. Love this eclipse so much. Good job, sun. Good job, moon. Good job, eclipse enthusiasts ♥

I almost took the entry down, it's such a poor photo, comparatively speaking--but it's my own record, so.

There are so many beautiful ones out there--I've been enjoying looking at them.

I have a very feeble photo of a crescent sun taken during the 2015 partial eclipse (UK). I used a pinhole camera made out of a cardboard box, but as you say, it was my feeble record of the event so even though there were much better ones, I still like it.

I tried to look at the reflection in water but it was still too bright.

My brother somehow got a picture of the actual sun, with his phone. I'll have to ask him how he did it. (He lives near me, i.e., nowhere near totality)

I'm not sure how to change the exposure length with a phone but probably with a really really really short exposure and/or a polarized filter over the lens.
