Partial eclipse of the sun

Just as with the lunar eclipse last month, our partial solar eclipse was mainly obscured by early morning mist and cloud.  This may have been a blessing because medium cloud cover enabled me to get a decent-ish photo of the sun just as it cleared the trees:

You can clearly see the moon’s shadow on the left hand side of the sun.

There was another in wispy cloud which is a little streaked and not so well defined at the shadow edges, but the other photos I had in thinner cloud were overexposed.
