    when light passes through the clouds

    I want to express the idea that light passes through the clouds. Are these correct and natural?

    1. Faint sunlight leaked through puffy clouds, painting the mountains with a copper gleam.
    2. Dim moonlight streamed through the clouds, casting a pale hazy orange over the hills.
    3. The rays of a setting sun spilled from above the clouds, bathing the sky in a hazy pinkish glimmer.
    4. Sunlight bled through the clouds, and the sky was wrapped in its hazy light.

    1. Faint sunlight filtered through puffy clouds, painting the mountains with a copper gleam.
    2. Dim moonlight streamed through the clouds, casting a pale hazy orange over the hills.
    3. The rays of a setting sun spilled through the clouds, bathing the sky in a hazy pinkish glimmer.

    Bled is odd, but in the right context it can work.

    I'm not a teacher. I speak American English. I've tutored writing at the University of Southern Maine and have done a good deal of copy editing and writing, occasionally for publication.
