The Eclipse: An Alternative View

While most of the America was busy looking UP this afternoon during the eclipse, Hubs and I were busy looking DOWN. Since we had neglected to buy special glasses to view the eclipse safely, we weren't able to gaze upward to observe the moon blotting out the sun. Instead, we enjoyed quite a show on the ground beneath our feet! Take a look:

What amazing patterns the eclipse cast on these flagstones!

Its light patterns on the gravel driveway

These resembled ocean waves
The curvature of the moon obscuring the sun's corona created the arcs of light.

My studio, seen here at the beginning of the eclipse when the light is just starting to change. We were able to see the beautiful light patterns on the ground because we're surrounded by woods, as you can see. The trees provided enough shade for the light patterns to be visible.

  1. I did have the glasses, Lynn, but like you I was entranced by the patterns of the leaves. Thanks for sharing your pics.
