Gorgeous Shot of Today's Eclipse

This photo was taken by Sara Chuaycharoensuk, a student of mine, and it's my favorite of the ones I've seen today.  What you are seeing are images of the eclipse formed by pinhole cameras.  Where are the pinholes, you may be asking.  The spaces between the leaves of a nearby tree!


Thank you Sara for the photo.


  1. Wow! I kept reading that it was the leaves that were the pinhole cameras, but it's the SPACES between the leaves. That makes more sense. Thanks!
