Local eclipse images
4

This is not a picture taken on a snowy day; it is the projection onto the sidewalk (in British English, “pavement”) of the image of the moon crossing in front of the sun, created by the pinhole camera effect of the light filtering between the leaves of trees on the side of the street. Portland, Oregon, Council Crest Park, 2017 August 21.

The grainy effect in the foreground is not, in fact, grain, but micro shadows caused by the rough texture of the concrete.
