Word a Week Photo Challenge : Light

I have not been able to enter Sue’s challenge for the past couple of weeks (poor internet connection!) but I could not let this one slip by. Sue, aka Skinnywench, from the blog “A word in your ear” sets a challenge each week by opening her dictionary and randomly picking a word for us to interpret.

This week it is “Light”

For photographers it is the light that defines the picture. Poor light and the photo will be a failure. It will be drab and lifeless. The same picture taken in a different light can be stunning, a show stopper, one that makes people go WOW.

Go to Sues blog (click here) to see some superb examples of photos caught in the best light, they glow.

As I travel I automatically watch for that “good light”, early morning and late afternoon are known as the “golden hours” The landscape transforms into a photographers dream.

One of my favourite subjects are flowers. They can be a challenge especially if the wind is blowing, as it often is in Australia…

Here are a few I hope you like them…
