We got clouds with the sun peaking in and out. I bumped the camera out of focus so I am not going to crop down to far but will post some.

Here in sunny CA (SF Bay Area) I saw it, but not the fully annular effect.
I watched it by watching the light and shadows of the trees. Really interesting!
Sky is clear, no clouds.

Here are some pics, through some clouds and a little out of focus.

This is all I managed to get just before the hazy clouds fuzzed the shadows up too much.

At least I'm only out 4 bux on the solar glasses

If I'd driven a hundred miles and then gotten skunked...

Never argue with a fool. Onlookers often can't tell the difference.
Growing older is mandatory, growing up is optional.
My advice is free and worth every penny.

What does dappled sunlight normally look like?

I saw it about like Steve's pictures, except I was looking at it in a parking lot. Every tree shadow I passed I could tell was non-round dappling. That is an interesting effect, against the white house.

Yes, the light did look sort of 'weird' here. Not really dark, just 'something odd'.

2in10, those are some nice pics!

Very cool shots Steve.

I think I tried to focus the camera over the top of my sunglasses or with the sunglasses which are for distance only. Either way a fail. Live and learn and hopefully remember.
