This morning I am responding to Donna's personal photo challenge titled, " Let there be light" and I am linking to Donna's blog at : a personal photo challenge blogspot.ca
I am usually at my window early in the morning that faces our bird feeding area watching for the early arrivals at the feeders. I await with my camera in my hand. I am usually too early to take pictures as the light is not yet full
Another low light photo this week was these two Goldfinch shown below. The yellow at their throats was highlighted and I loved the contrast between the light and the dark in the photo. The background easily indicates the low light of the early morning setting.
I am not sure how I captured the light in the next photo. It is of a BlueJay with a yellow glow. I love the yellow tones in the photo and I was surprised to see its glow as I downloaded the photo.. The light in this picture was fuller and was not of 'low light' as the stronger light can be seen on the fence in the background. To see the yellow glow surrounding the bird please doubleclick on the photo.
One thing I like about' low light'pictures is how the low light of the background appears to blend with the colours of the subject such as in these remaining pictures of Goldfinch included below.
Have a great day everyone. Its almost light and its time to check out my feeders to see what bird visitors we have today. We are averring about 10 different species each day recently and its a great way to get the day started.
