Lens-Artists Photo Challenge – Natural Light

This week, Amy has suggested that we look at things in a Natural Light for the Lens-Artists Photo Challenge. Many years ago, when I first started out with my Minolta film camera, I used very high speed film for most low light situations, which probably accounts for the grainy texture of many of my earlier pictures. This one was taken just after sunset at the Chicago Botanic Garden.

Since then, I’ve tried to capture different kinds of natural light with the Canon Rebel including sunset over Lake Michigan from Mackinaw City and at the Chicago Botanic Garden.

And the softer light of sunrise, over Lake Huron from Mackinaw City and in Nebraska.

Late afternoon in Arches National Park in Utah and early morning in Custer State Park, South Dakota.

It seemed like the light changed every minute while we were on Antelope Island in Utah. There had been intermittent thunderstorms all day and another one rolled in just as we were leaving, but in between, the sun came out and lit up the landscape.

Sometimes I only have to step outside the front door to see a natural light show.

  1. Beautiful natural light show in different states. Stunning sunset scene!
    I love the rainbow captured from your front door. I really enjoy this series, Sue.

  2. Funny how well the old film shots hold up so well Sue. You’ve captured the light beautifully in all of your images – and of course we’re all suckers for a beautiful rainbow!

  3. Stunning selection of photos – what a wonderful world we live in and thank goodness for photographers like you to capture these precious moments so others can enjoy the scenes again.
