Reflections of a Solar Eclipse

For Jennifer Nichole Wells’ One Word Photo Challenge, I am submitting these photos for the theme of “Sun.”

In 2012, there was a solar eclipse visible in Northern California. The conditions were right for us to watch this rare cosmic event through the filter of the trees in our front yard. A few moments later I turned around and noticed the how the filtered reflections of the eclipse danced on the side of the house like crescent kites.

And just for fun, I included the requisite sunset photo at the Sacramento Delta.

  2. This is absolutely lovely! Canterbury had a 70% visible solar eclipse a few weeks ago, but England being England, it was too cloudy to see! I made cardboard ‘viewers’ and everything. Oh well. I love your images!
