WWWAT: Seeing the Light


This month's theme is "Capturing the Light"

Which is interesting, because I've noticed that I have been a bit obsessed with that idea when taking photos lately. Here are a few of my recent favorites.

Experimenting with the shutter

I loved the way the light was hitting her hair...

The other morning I was up in time to catch the sunrise. I thought the way the light was hitting the trees was beautiful, so I tried to capture it...

These are the same leaves that I took a photo of before that I really liked...I thought it would be neat to do it again now that they're changing colors.
I was so inspired by the sunrise that morning that Ciara and I decided to take a walk together. As we were walking I saw the beams of sunlight filtering through the trees and just had to take a picture of it...



Later on during the walk I saw this sign and thought that the shadows the sun was casting looked neat...

Back at home I noticed that the sun was making the leaves on my dogwood bush look pretty cool, so I snapped another picture of that...
This last one was as the sun was setting. It was shining through our patio door right onto Ciara. Fortunately my camera was right next to me at the time. I would have missed the shot if I'd had to go get it.

Now that you've seen how I capture the light, please go check out the fest @ The Adventures of an American Mum to see more!

I love the picture of your daughter in the last one. Beautiful pics, Shannon (I have to admit, I was kinda hoping you'd find a way to weave NKOTB into this theme!)
