Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #138 – Natural Light

This week, the theme for LAPC is Natural Light.

“Natural light photography uses the sun as a light source. The available light from the sun varies with the time of day. A sunny day provides full illumination, while an overcast day may afford texture and nuance to a photographer.” — Annie Leibovitz

For this theme, I would like to share photos of changing light throughout the day in different parts of the world.

The Blue Hour is defined as the period of the day when the colour of the sky ranges from blue to dark blue, typically 20 to 30 minutes before sunrise and after sunset. 

Sarasota Beach, Florida:

Grand Canyon:

The color of the sky changes consistently during and after the sunset, Hawaii:

In photography, the golden hour is the period of daylight shortly after sunrise or before sunset, when the light is much softer.

Watching beautiful scenes as we cruised along Switzerland’s Coastline.

Watching the colors changes as the sun was rising. This scene was captured at Pattaya Beach, Thailand:

Sunlight over the farmland of Texas:

There are abundant opportunities to capture natural light as sunlight changes color over the course of the day. Light is different every day and every moment. You may also include photos of backlight and/or side light in your own yard/ local parks or shadows from your windows. We’re looking forward to seeing your creative responses. Please remember to link to my post and add the Lens-Artists tag.

Ann-Christine’s soft theme and beautiful photos have inspired all of us. Thank you for joining in. We enjoyed your creative soft photos from nature’s beauty to architecture, roads, people, birds, dogs, and cats.

Tina will host LAPC #139 next week. Be sure to visit her site.
