Here are a few photos of leaf shadows during the eclipse August 21, 2017.
The first time I experienced an eclipse (??when was that??), I stepped outdoors and saw multiple shadows like these. I was frightened, but not for long. They don’t look like leaves but how could they be shadows of the eclipse itself? the sun and moon crossing paths? However they occurred, the result is magical, and if you’re not alone and surprised by it, it’s very pleasant. The world is muted and softer, as if it’s sleeping a moment or as if I could sleep on the shadows, a billowy sleep.
