Rather daringly, I set the theme for The Cosmic Photo Challenge this week with hopes that the English weather would cooperate and gave you the prompt; Low light.
If I had been imagining nice twilight shots of dusky sunsets and the gauzy loveliness of early morning mist, I would have been disappointed. But I’m a realist, so it didn’t surprise me at all when I left the house yesterday afternoon at 4 and it immediately started to rain.
But I was out by then, so I took a soggy stroll along the river in the park and managed to capture a few half decent images of a grey winter’s day.
Of course, by the time I got home it had stopped raining, so when it was properly dark I did some mucking about, using long exposures and the mood lighting in the garden.
*Edit: Because it annoys me that the weather was typically pleasant today, now we’re all back at work, here are the sort of photos I was hoping to capture yesterday, from earlier this evening. ;~}
So, what did all you bright sparks find to illuminate the darkness at the weekend?
Come on, don’t be shy, we all want to see…
To get involved with the challenge; check out the Cosmic Photo Prompt each Friday, then post a photo (or photos) on your blog the following Monday, with a pingback link to my Monday post.
