photoblog image Light waves

Light waves


This picture is exactly what I hoped for when I clicked the shutter and has only been resized for uploading here.

It's a wooden post, and one that I've shown a picture of before - here - when the tide was lower.

Do you think this picture is appropriate for a Sunday?

Oh my - I think that this is the kind of shot all of us hope to achieve when we put the camera to our eye. EXCELLENT! I love the way the lights dance with the water -- it almost looks like the water is alive from the light within. The post could almost be a person... This is excellent work!

Beautiful! It reminds me of a person in that water...

A photo out of nothing but the sun is the star here, causing these fabulous twinkles on the water. Well seen and captured.

Sparkles dancing on the water. if you could capture them they would make the best, most expensive ear rings on the planet. who needs diamonds eh?

It looks like a figure standing in the water. I'm not sure what you are getting at with your question, unless you think the image has some religious overtones. The only thing I can think of there is Christ walking on the waters, but maybe that's pushing it a bit too far!

Excellent and likey.

Appropriate for a Sunday? I find it an interesting and multi-facetted question.

First you don't need to set Sundays apart from the other days - you be a good christian on all of them. Sunday is supposed to be marked as a rest day (old testament) or a feast day to commemorate (new testament). Does the picture show rest? Yes. Does the picture look festive? Yes, with all the glittering lights.

One other angle from your question. Does the picture speak of God. Yes, all nature does. There is water, there is light and it is beautiful.
