Weekly Photo Challenge : Light

Heavenly light

Without light to nurture all living things the beauty would fade and die. Normally light is not visible. It surrounds us invisibly and we accept it with out thought.

I will always remember this vision as I walked through the tropical glasshouses in Adelaide and the sprinklers turned on. I stopped, spellbound as the air glistened and shimmered with the sun cascading through the mist. An unforgettable sight.

Then there is the man-made beauty that we surround ourselves with.

This is Hobart Town Hall, the venue for the Autumn Flower Show. The crisp blue and white decor with the sparkling of the chandeliers created a perfect back drop for the exquisite display of blooms.

I’m sure hundreds of bloggers will see the light in this challenge and I look forward to browsing through them. Go here to see the light

Ailsa of “Where’s my backpack?” has challenged us to show a light this week and this is one of my all time favourite photos of the glory and beauty of light.

I used Photoshop Elements to put a frame around it.
