Weekly Photo Challenge: Let there be Light & Travel Theme: Sky

Another week when I am combining the WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge and the Travel Theme suggested by Ailsa at Where’s my Backpack. Life is a bit earnest and real at the moment, and time is short for blogging, so I had a trawl through the archive and came up with three images which I hope illustrate the combined themes.

First up, an image of the dawn sky, with sunlight reflected in the clouds:

Light my dawn

Light my dawn

Second, an image taken during the day, sun bursting out from behind the clouds (a version of my header image)

fiat lux!

fiat lux!

Finally, a night shot of a harvest moon

  1. Fantastic shots Sue! Love the dramatic Harvest Moon in particular.

  2. Wonderful captures, I love them all and most of all the last one, harvest moon.
    Enjoy your weekend!
    Love, DIna

  3. I agree…the last one is very dramatic. 🙂


  4. Good choice of images for both challenges Sue. Like the others I love the harvest moon – a real source of light and such a dramatic image with the halo. Hope things calm down for you soon 🙂

    • Thanks Jude! Two challenges in one is to make myself think more! Glad you liked my images, and I agree, that Harvest Moon was great, just wish I had used a longer lens, get more detail in the moon perhaps. Thanks for your thoughts, much appreciated XX

      • Well isn’t that what photography is all about? Strive to do better? Until you reach perfection? Although actually when do you know you have reached perfection? When I look at some of the shots that win competitions I have to wonder…

      • You and me both! 🙂

  5. Stunningly beautiful. Thank you for sharing your gift with us.

  7. Very dramatic Sue – neat idea to combine the two challenges – watch this space 🙂

    • Many thanks, Robin, I like trying to come up with images to kill 2 birds with one stone, as it were! Got to keep the grey matter going… 🙂

  8. Drama in the skies….lovely shots.

  10. Those are all great photos. Love them all, but especially the middle photo!

    • Thanks Gail, much appreciated. That middle image has sat unaltered on my computer since I took it a few years ago… Then I had a play with Color Efex, and that’s the image you see on this post. I hope subtle but effective! 🙂

  11. Fantastic photographs.

  13. All wonderful, but that second one is my favorite.

  14. Beautiful start to my Sunday, Sue 🙂 Useless to say slow down a bit at this time of year. We’ll all collapse in a heap on Boxing Day!
