The week’s weekly photo challenge is “Let there be Light” where we had to share a photo of a light source. Light is an essential element of photography and is even apart of the word i.e. photos- for “light” and -graphos for “drawing”. Playing with various light sources, its placement, its intensity, etc gives a new / different look to the pictures and helps the artist in the photographer create a new masterpiece. I love playing with light in my pictures too and taking pictures of various light sources, especially the sun, candles and lamps. But for this challenge I decided to share 2 simple pictures using just 2 different sources of light i.e. Sun for the natural source (outdoors) and Bulb for the artificial source (indoors).
This pic was taken around sunset over Lake Thun on our way back from Niederhorn. I love the natural colors of the Sun, the dramatic effects of the clouds all around and the shadow in the Lake Thun below.
This pic was taken during the glacier walk near the Matterhorn. There are numerous ice sculptures here and I loved the whole color and dimension added by the colorful bulbs to the otherwise colorless ice.
I hope you like these pics too and please feel free to share your thoughts on this below. You can also check out additional posts on this topic here.
