Light… and Dark

Paula’s black and white Sunday this week is all about Light.


One of the things I do love about winter is how trees become so beautiful with their bare limbs free of leaves so that the structure shows against the sky. Sometimes, as in this case, the sky behind also has a beauty of its own with interesting cloud formations and shooting into the sun produces a monochromatic image without much post-processing required.

I have lived in the UK for most of my life, but when young I definitely had wanderlust and even ended up living in South Africa for several years which was a wonderful experience. I now look forward to a long and leisurely retirement doing what I like most - gardening, photography, walking and travelling.

    1. The second image is the same, but closer in and the clouds had changed even in that short time (very windy day). Glad you enjoyed them Colline 🙂

    1. Hah! It was rather Pete. The only sunny day we experienced during a week in Pembrokeshire at Christmas a few years ago. It was also VERY windy!

  1. I couldn’t agree with you more. The stark skeletal silhouettes of the trees against a moody sky with the light of the sun peaking out is beautiful!

      1. hahaha! It’s early in the morning and I’m still nursing my coffee. Sometimes I get lucky 😉
        … but I must say, I just noticed the alliteration. It was unintentional, but it works and I really like it! 😀
