Photographer's Note

"And God said, "Let there be light," and there was light. God saw that the light was good, and He separated the light from the darkness. God called the light "day," and the darkness he called "night." And there was evening, and there was morning—the first day"

I thought of this passage when I took this photo at Hicks Lake the other day. As some on trek may already know backlighting is one of my favorite approaches to photography. That is perhaps photography is in its purest sense capturing light.
You can see just above the tree where the sunlight is shining. What I liked about this photo is that the details across the lake came through. Because there are few details in this frame the main feature is the lighting itself.
The workshop shows the original photo before cropping. I have already posted a photo of this tree in March. You can also see the profound difference angle of lighting makes at the same location.
Backlighting can be a challenge but the results are always worth the effort. You will find more illustrations in my gallery when you open this photo and this one too.
