I had a difficult time selecting a single photo to epitomize this week’s Photo Friday prompt, “Brightly Lit”. I soon realized that there are many, equally compelling interpretations.
Brightly Lit: Direct Light: The indescribably bright, white-hot flame flickering in a beachside fire pit.
Brightly Lit: “Indirect”: The surreal light falling on the blowing reeds of tall grass; rays emanating from a sun – soon to be occluded by the gathering, darkening could of an approaching summer thunderstorm.
Brightly lit, “Backlight”: The stunning palette created at sunset for the silhouette spires of the Magic Kingdom in WDW, Florida.
Brightly Lit, “Reflections”: The reflected light and shadow of the seaside palm trees, reflected on the face of the Hawaii long house. Not only are these obvious elements the reflected surface or the reflected subject, but upon closer scrutiny the newly created tracks of the sand comber wheels and rakes, also become brightly lit.
Brightly Lit, “Morning Has Broken”: At the moment when the sunrise breaks through, drenching the pre-dawn morning with intensely golden rays, from behind the (now-demolished) Volcano Pool at the Polynesian Village.
