Looking for the light

Across at A Separate Life, I'm doing NaBloPoMo - posting every day for a month on the subject of photographs. I'm following blog prompts from BlogHer, and cross posting to BlogHer from time to time. I thought this post would sit well here too, just in case you haven't seen it elsewhere, although there are more photos on the original here. Today's theme was Light.

Photographers chase light, perhaps in the same way that many bloggers chase enlightenment. Much of the time though, we have to work with what we have. But every so often, after a long stretch of doom and gloom, we find ourselves in the right place at the right time. It is our reward for sticking through the darker, less rewarding times. So we should really stop and appreciate the light, figure out what is happening, and take a snapshot of that moment – mentally, or physically with a camera – so we can remember it again when we’re back in the clouds.
