Lens Artists Photo Challenge #162 It’s all about the light

Remember: Always walk in the light.

And if you feel like you’re not walking in it, go find it.

Love the light.

Roberta Flack

From the glow of a misty morning moonset to the last rays of the setting sun, everywhere I wander I seek the light….

And I find light in the skies amidst the storms. 

I find the light hiding in the clouds…

Surprising me with its rainbow hues …

Lightly kissing the rolling hills …….

Silhouettes shining through the trees whilst reflections glimmer on the lakes….

I create my words and images to capture the light in my life.

Winter Whites, Life in Colour June

As  I sit here on a wet winter Saturday, the view out the window is almost a white-out as the clouds are sitting low against  a very grey sea.  The ducks are ducking their heads under to snatch some duckweed.. Their movement is noticeable only in the ripples they create in the otherwise calm waters.

Tiny waves are gently lapping the beach forming tidal patterns at the water’s edge.  Currents show as a deeper silver on the still waters. The tidal flow is creeping quietly up the gravel beach, surrounding the huge driftwood log that has been stranded since being cast ashore in the last storm. It now serves a a roosting perch for cormorants as they dry their wings and digest the fish they dived under the waves to catch.

It must be time to post some silver and white images for Life in Colour – June.

I will start with some  seascapes and seagulls in silver. 

There are mountains of mountain images in my April/May archives – here are but a few with that white stuff called snow and a scattering of clouds.

And there were the frosty foggy finds… 

And I still love to capture splashes of white

I may yet find more silver or white before the end of June.

SundayStills – Fog and Clouds of Aotearoa – the Land of the Long White Cloud

I love clouds. I once tried a project of photographing clouds every day for a month. I was a little concerned there might be some cloudless days but I was  in luck – or maybe I just chose a cloudy month.  Or is it because I live in New Zealand/Aotearoa – the land of the long white cloud?

It is so intriguing gazing at atmospheric skies. Clouds are a never-ending source of fascination.

Here is a selection of foggy sunrises , misty clouds with fringes of sunlight and a couple of lucky rainbows just because. Did I mention I love rainbows too?

2. Erasing clouds

Springtime continues to elude us. 
Teasing with flashes of sunshine amidst splashes of rain. 

Calm moments alternate with gales
Seas reflect then blur with stormy waves. 

Unseasonable snow stops the spring growth
Weather patterns are a-changing 

Fiery clouds accumulate over clear blue skies. 
Hazy days and cloudy nights. 

Climate change scientists fight the ego of politicians. 
Have we the luxury of time to debate how to save the environment? 

Erase the clouds of bad judgement
And please just save our planet.
