Weekly Sunday Post: Light

This was a serendipitous moment. We were stopped at a traffic signal waiting to turn left. I looked to my right and saw the sun low in the sky and thought I’d grab a shot or two. The first two shots were complete failures. The third shot caught a telephone pole as Richard was pulling through the light. I snapped a fourth shot, sure that it was nothing but a blur as we pulled into the intersection and then on toward our destination. The sun was no longer in sight. When I got home and downloaded the four images, this, the fourth, was the only image I kept. 🙂 I love it when that happens!

    1. Thank you, Judy. Yes, this is one in a million. But it’s the one that turns out, out of the million, that keeps me shooting even when I think nothing good will come of it! Kind of a metaphor for life, huh. Thanks for stopping by. Much appreciated. 🙂

  1. Cecelia –
    Isn’t that how it goes. The post, the picture, the words of comfort that we think miss the mark are often the ones that resonate! 😀
    Lovely photo!

    1. This was a gift. I could not have captured this if I tried. In fact, I almost didn’t try. But it doesn’t hurt to “point and shoot” at times. The Universe can be kind. 🙂 Thanks for stopping by. Glad you like the photo. (I feel guilty taking credit for it actually. It was truly an ‘accident’.)

    1. What can I say. All I did was point and shoot . . . from a moving car turning left as I shot this to our right. Who’d of thunk. This was nothing short of a gift from the Universe. Glad you like it. 🙂

  2. Beautiful shot and lighting! Looks like you’ve caught (hopefully) some of the last naked trees before they start budding away! Your orchid photos have gotten me all excited for spring to be sprung!

  3. I always like sunset and sunrise photos–they’re almost always good as long as they catch the scene.
    I had to come to your site to see how well it loaded after seeing your comment on NRHatch’s blog. The front part of your blog loads quickly but something in the background takes a long time. Have you tried getting rid of that wallpaper or whatever you call it? I can only see it on the side margins and it seems pretty pointless to have that if that’s what slows down the loading.

    It didn’t slow me down getting to make this comment though. It was just loading in the background while I was leaving my comment.

    Tossing It Out

    1. Thankyou Arlee Bird. You and several others have alluded to the wallpaper so I’m taking it out. If that is the problem, it is easily fixed. Also, thanks for stopping by. Much appreciated. 🙂

  4. Wow. You surely have improved your site since my last visit!
    I love this shot of the sun. Totally wonderful you could capture it in spite of circumstances!
    It reminds me of a saying we have on a screen saver:
    Have thy tools ready; God will find thee work.
