My Favorite Light

March 15, 2014

I love the unique and special light that comes on days that the sun rises into a small clear break in the eastern sky with heavy clouds to the west.  The clear light and the dark clouds make subjects glow brightly in a very rare way.  This morning the Broadkill River in Lewes  was lit up just this way and fortunately the wind had dropped out to dead calm leaving a mirror surface to bounce the light and reflect objects in the water.  I grabbed my camera and made a few photographs in the very few minutes of special light.
