I don't know why I found this so fascinating but my gaze was stuck on the shadows of the leaves from the side of the tree, like a spotlight of a dancer, they were moving in the wind with just the tiniest delay for the shadows (technically you can do the math if you want, divide the speed of light with the distance between the tree and the wall but it's so small that it would be imperceptible to the human brain).

Have to admire Michelson and Morley ...
