    describe sun through the trees

    Hello

    How can I describe the shining sun through the branches of trees?

    I thought about using the verb "dapple" but I don't think it works for this picture, does it?

    I agree that it doesn't really work there. Sunlight is usually described as "dappled" when it is shining through leafy branches.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    It's a winter sun shining through a web of bare tree limbs.

    Re: describe sun through the trees

    Is there another verb I can use instead of "shine through" ?
