I have always been very interested in capturing moments of beautiful natural light. The way that light reflects off of things, shines through and wraps around, casting beautifully unique shadows and ripples of light, is fascinating to me. Lately I seem to be even more drawn (borderline obsessed perhaps) to these things, and often stop in the middle of whatever I am doing to capture these little moments.
The first two are from my phone, because that is what I consistently have easily available when these moments happen. And, unfortunately I accidentally cleared off some of my favorite images (or I expected them to be) from my SD card before transferring them to my computer. I’m hoping to re-shoot a similar thing soon, but for now here are some of my recently documented “moments of light” to share with you.
A few weeks ago (yes, I am just now finally getting around to sharing) I went for a quick hike in the Konza Prairie. I had apparently just missed the controlled burns there, and was struck by how bare this landscape now looked. Also, I am indeed aware that I am slightly obsessed with images of vanishing points, so that is mostly what I shot while there. The contrast between the untouched path and burned land around it fascinated me that day.
A local winery hosted a jazz festival today, and one of my friends was playing, so a group of us went out for the day to enjoy some good music, the beautiful weather, and some good wine. We ended up going for a short walk around the vineyard as well. Overall, an absolutely fantastic day.
A day late again, of course. Yesterday there was a slight coating of snow when I got up in the morning. I was leaving my house fairly early to run some errands and I decided to take some pictures in my fron yard before heading out. The first one is the picture I chose for my 365, I just wanted to share the others as well.
Elliot’s wonderful cousin Hannah was in town from North Carolina this weekend, so as usual we headed to Keenland for the afternoon. For those of you who don’t know, Keenland is the horse track here in Lexington. It is a real pretty place, and tons of people go to spend the day there. People get there super early and tailgate and then go in and bet on the races, it is a blast. We had such perfect weather on Saturday, it was beautiful. And I actually won a little bit of money!
