February 26 – Light

GEDSC DIGITAL CAMERAHi and Happy Wednesday.  Today we are halfway through the week — hump day!  Hope you are having a good one.

Today’s photo challenge is Light.  I have taken tons of sunset pictures over the years at the beach and love them and the light and colors that show.  Lovely.

Instead for today, I decided to use one that I took on the way back from walking to school with Ian.  It is pretty of the morning light and the amazing blue sky.

This photo was taken a few days on a  lovely morning. I liked looking through the trees at the light and like seeing the shadows on the ground.

Light is important — both sunlight and lights from lamps and bulbs.  I am thankful to live in a part of the world with electricity and access to light at the flip of a switch.

I don’t know about you but I sometimes get the blues when I am deprived from sunlight.  Too many cloudy and rainy days in a row can be tough at times.

May you have a day full of light and happiness and fun!

Here are a few quotes on Light:

  • “We cannot hold a torch to light another’s path without brightening our own.”  ~Ben Sweetland
  • “Light gives of itself freely, filling all available space.  It does not seek anything in return; it asks not whether you are friend or foe.  It gives of itself and is not thereby diminished.”  ~Michael Strassfeld
  • “People are like stained-glass windows.  They sparkle and shine when the sun is out, but when the darkness sets in their true beauty is revealed only if there is light from within.”  ~ Elisabeth Kübler-Ross
  • “Turn your face to the sun and the shadows fall behind you.”  ~Maori Proverb
  • “Darkness cannot drive out darkness: only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate: only love can do that.”– Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

I wonder what varieties of light I will see today?  I can’t wait for the adventure.
