  1. I take it this was the eclipse? Looks great with the sun’s rays coming through the trees.

    • It was my attempt at the eclipse! I could see it better than it came out on the photo, but I still quite liked this pic!

    • It is the eclipse! Hard to tell really, apart from the fact it looks so dark (there’s no filter on this). It was quite a special sight! x

  2. Love the way you’ve captured the light through the trees – was this during the eclipse?

  3. What a great picture. It was difficult to capture. I hid behind the door, aimed and hoped for the best. Looks like you had a nice day. It poured here after it. Big hugs x

    • What a lovely thing to say! It was taken right outside my front door, so your instinct is right!

  4. Lucky you – we had thick cloud here and saw nothing. I was lucky enough to see the total eclipse in 1999 but I was gutted for the boys.

    • I was really pleased with the view I got! I saw it in 1999 too, but think I liked this one better!

  5. Great shot of the eclipse. It was a huge disappointment here… Too cloudy

    • Thanks! The timing was perfect for us – the clouds came over afterwards and there was just enough cloud so we could look at it briefly.

  6. I’m jealous that you were able to capture some of the eclipse event – we had just clouds and clouds!

    • That’s a real shame! The photo doesn’t do it justice, but it was an amazing thing to see.

  7. Was this the eclipse? We didn’t get to see it as it was so cloudy

    Thank you for linking up

  8. That is an amazing photo, I love the way the sun comes through the trees, almost like a spirit. #mysundayphoto

  9. Love how the branches frame the sun, it still looks SO bright despite the eclipse doesnt it?

    Post a Reply
    • It does! And that was around the time the eclipse was at its peak (I’m not sure what the actual word is!).

  10. My pictures of the eclipse look pretty similar. The sun was so bright!

  11. Still very atmospheric though, and you can see the sun peeping through! It was a clear and sunny day here but absolutely no glasses to be found anywhere, and I wasn’t paying £50 for a paper pair from Amazon!! 😀

    • No way! Definitely not worth that! I wish I’d invested in some cheap ones, but I was pretty happy with what I did manage to see.

  12. Look at how dark the sky is at the forefront of the photo compared to the bright spot, silhouetting the trees
    Great capture of the Eclipse

    • Thanks very much! The sky was strangely dramatic. I don’t think this photo has quite done it justice, but it was definitely the best one I took!
