L/Alphabe-Thursday

Light and shadows on the shores of Lake Simcoe

L is for LIGHT

Photographers try to control and manipulate light. For sure, some types of light tempt me to take photos more than others.

 Early morning light

Golden morning light is something I love. Unfortunately, you do have to get up early -especially in summer - to capture early morning sunlight.

Evening light

And I also love late afternoon/evening light.

Gorgeous...each and every photo share!

And I loved your three birds for WBW post below this one.

Anvilcloud said...

You are sure right about the golden hours -- both early and late -- are the best times for photos.

Judy said...

I love the shadows on the rock, in the first image, but my favourite of them all is the last one, the setting sun and the barn!!

Shammickite said...

I could never get up early enough to catch the morning light. You have done a superb job with the light in these photos.

William Kendall said...

Splendid examples of light here. I love that evening shot.

PerthDailyPhoto said...

Beautiful shots of early and evening light EG. The hardest light is midday don't you think, especially in summer.. so harsh.

TexWisGirl said...

l for lovely. :)

It's fun getting up in the a.m., unfortunately, the bugs are bad, too!

Small City Scenes said...

Beautiful shots of good examples of different light.
We have fog this morning. I took the dog for a walk at 6:30 and all I got was a Mosquito bite. MB

Jennifer A. Jilks said...

I love the early morning, ;cept the bugs do, too!

I love early morning light. Nice shot of the barn.

Halcyon said...

You picked some nice examples of light. I also like the golden early light but not the getting up part! :)

John @ Sinbad and I on the Loose said...

Morning light always alludes me. I lie in bed thinking about this problem but cannot figure out why.

Pamela Gordon said...

These are all such beautiful photos and examples of different kinds of lighting. I really like the last photo of the barn with the sun either setting or rising.

Sandra said...

that golden morning light is my favorite light of all. each morning i stand with coffee in hand and stare up at the trees to the west because the sun coming up in the east is slowly painting all things it touches. this photo looks like you used my crayons on it. beautiful

Vagabonde said...

You show beautiful examples of light – my favorite is Evening Light; it has beautiful colors. I find it hard to take photographs in hard noon-day lights, it is tricky.

RedPat said...

I rarely see early morning light, EG! ;-)

John "By Stargoose And Hanglands" said...

A very painterly quality to the light in all of these but particularly that first shot.

Jette Hollesen said...

I love the photo of the golden morninglight. Fantastic building.

Morning, noon or evening, your world is lovely!

Marleen said...

I'm a morning person, and I love the light in your 'morning' picture! Those colours are amazing.

cieldequimper said...

You've captured so many different ones here and they change every day so you could go on, and on!

Beth of "E." Lizard Breath Speaks said...

i love both of the barn shots. they are just too gorgeous!! nice ones, my friend. glad you shared. ( :

Ginny said...

The second picture of the barn in early morning is my favorite. It is wonderful!!! The light is so beautiful.

Pam Beers. said...

The barn shots with the two different types of lighting is fascinating. Light plays such an important and dramatic role for artists and photographers. Beautiful photos...as usual.

Heather{Our Life In a Click} said...

That gold morning light is gorgeous!

Gail Dixon said...

The barn shots are particularly nice. The first one is glowing and the second barn image gives such a peaceful feeling.

eileeninmd said...

Lovely images. I agree with the others, the barn shots are wonderful.

Lowell said...

It's always about the light. Ken Rockwell, photographer extraordinaire, says you get up before sunrise and then nap during the day so you could go back out to photograph as evening sets in. I agree, but generally am too lazy so have to deal with too bright sun and too much contrast! :)

DeniseinVA said...

Perfect lighting and perfect photos. I love the shadow of the leaves on the rock.

Stephanie said...

Beautiful images!

Kay said...

Great examples of beautiful lighting. I love your morning and evening shots especially; the light is just right and the scenes are gorgeous. I'm among those who can't seem to "do" mornings.

Krishna/കൃഷ്ണ said...

Lovely "L" posts - I too am fascinated by light and chase after it with my camera every chance I get...

Susan Anderson said...

Gorgeous shots of so many kinds of light. You always seem to capture difficult things well.

=)

Barb said...

Count me in for that evening light.

Debbie said...

WoW, gorgeous light!!!!

Grantham Lynn said...

Beautiful captures. Perfect for the topic!

Rose said...

I so love these! I could not begin to choose which I like best.

Sallie (FullTime-Life) said...

You're a master at perfect shots...a nice tutorial for me as a rank amateur .

Jenny said...

Wonderful shots as always, especially the second and last one. I think the last one is my favourite :)

Betty said...

You certainly know about light because you have taken some beautiful photos.

Dominique Goh said...

Interesting play on light. The type of lighting really does affect the composition of the picture taken. Nice shots!!!

Judie said...

what wonderful light in these photos. You have such a gift for photography. Do you sell prints? By the way, my dermatologist was a very good friend, so he felt comfortable telling me that I was old. He's even older!!

Splendid Little Stars said...

light! lovely light!
I do love backlit flora. and sunsets. I'm seldom out in early morning. The first photo is wonderful!

edenhills said...

Photography really is all about the light. I personally love the evening golden light, so I don't have to get up early.

Sandra Black said...

Interesting how that first shot almost gives a 3D effect.

Jenny said...

Lovely light!

I especially like the backlit flower capture!

Thanks for linking to the letter L.
