Let There Be Light - December 01, 2013

The Weekly Photo Challenge for this week is Let There Be Light! The challenge is to have a photo that shows a light source. In considering this challenge is what is a light source. I thought about Ben’s Hanoi lamp shop photo with its spectacular splashes of color. Beautiful. I looked at the photos of others with beautiful sunsets or brightly lit structures. Many so wonderful. However a great deal of the light that we see our world is reflected light and that is the source I focus on here. Reflected light is what you might call it a 2nd generation source. Here the sun shines on the grasses. Many of its colors are absorbed but green and yellow and a bit of other colors in the sunlight are at least partially reflected. If no light was reflected, there would be an absence of color – an impenetrable blackness.
