Today I’m participating in Where’s My Backpack’s Travel Theme photo challenge. This week’s theme is “light”. Enjoy my photos and remember you can click on each photo for a larger view.

When taking photos, light is your best friend. It can also be your best enemy. Capturing the light the right way can make for a good or a not so good picture. I love using sunlight as much as I can to compose my photos, for example with this lemon.

There’s the light of the morning sun.

And the light of the setting sun.

Of course, light isn’t always natural, and we’re surrounded by plenty of artificial light. Here’s plenty of light from this glass chandelier in the lobby of the Hotel Del Coronado in Coronado, California.

And then, there’s the moon. Of course, the moon doesn’t produce light but only reflects it, and a full moon can reflect a lot of light!

And is there any happier light than the one created by Christmas lights?

      I took only a few photos of lemons this winter. I hope I can get a few good ones in the summer but it’s usually hot and too sunny for nice pics.
