In my book, all light is pretty fantastic as it touches our lives in such magical ways. It greets us at at our birth and each morning when we wake. It dances across our carpets and throws shadows upon our walls. Light hums soft melodies in woodland sanctuaries, murmurs patterned chords across the lake, and claps vibrant encores upon city spires. It sweeps the fog from valley hollows and runs down surrounding hills like a wave upon the sand. It paints a colorful autumn canvas and sprinkles glitter on freshly fallen snow. Light illuminates our daily paths, and finally, each evening creates a spectacle to celebrate the close of day.
As photographers, we stalk this magic - this light. We scope out mountain vistas, forest nooks, and dimly lit city streets. We lie in wait, little black boxes and tripods at the ready. The light arrives evaporating darkness; revealing color, form, pattern, and texture. It stages a theater of many moods and acts. We watch enamored, we click… and click again. Light fantastic. It is a magical gift for photographers. It is our inspiration and true subject.
Marianna captured an amazing bit of magic in her piece, Light Catchers!
