Catching the Light

Light is fascinating - sometimes it surprises me when I catch a glimpse of it in a different way.

Even a tiny bit of light on a snowy evening is inspiring.  .  .

Catching the morning light as it hits the new fallen snow.  .  .

Catching a deer in the snow - oh, that is a different kind of catching, but a good one.  .  .

Sunsets on the ocean - just a tiny space for the light to come through.  .  .

Even on a dark and gloomy day there is light to catch.  .  .

Blazing sunsets.  .  .

Gentle sunsets.  .  .

Light bursting across the sky.  .  .

Soft light, filtered through the trees.  .  .

Light justs before sunset - lighting up the trees by the river.  This happened so often that we took to calling this sight "river trees".  Now when we see that last bit of light catching something just before sunset, we call out "river trees" - even though it often is not near a river.

Sunset at the beach, looks soft enough to touch.  .  .

And the light at the end of the tunnel. .  .

From a kiss of light and colour to dramatic sunset light to a burst of light! Lovely range of photos!

You have really caught the light in marvellous photos. Like the sunset pictures most, but all are fine.

Så många vackra bilder på ljus du visar, det går inte att säga vem som är finast de är alla fina på sitt sätt.
Ha en fin vecka

Oh my goodness, JoAnn! Those photos are amazing! I love them all! Those snowy scenes are fabulous and the 'river trees' are gorgeous. Beautiful captures of light. xx

I absolutely love this kind of post where the blogger/photographer takes the time and thought to really explore a subject from many different angles. I couldn't even begin to choose a favorite. They all have their place in the "story of light." Well done indeed, JoAnn.

Jeanne said...

Beautiful photos, I especailly like the tunnel shot. Different perspective.

Kay said...

Beautiful shots! I kept thinking, "this one's my favorite," then went on to the next and liked it more still. Great series!

JoAnn those photographs are simply beautiful. I particularly like the River Trees. Is there snow on the trees to make them so white?

You have captured some wonderful examples and I love how light has an effect on the mood of the photograph too.
