Solar eclipse


Photographs by Bob Gitzen.

Photography contest, Honorable Mention.


The left frame shows the 84% partial eclipse of the sun on May 20 in Concord, California, passing through deodar cedar branches and projected onto a patio shade as a collection of pinhole camera images. The right frame is the same time the next day, showing the dramatic difference in appearance.


That’s a fascinating optical phenomenon. Thanks!

Mr. Gitzen must be a genius. What a bright idea and what a great picture! He captures the beauty of the eclipse in such an unusual way.
