About

 

Light, that's what it is all about, that's what we live for...shout it out.... OK, so this was taken at Cleveland a few weeks back, I loved how the light was hitting the tree trunk, and I knew that if I popped a 3 shot HDR I'd get some nice details, so I did.

 

Enjoy.

Shadows

 

A shadow is an area where direct light from a light source cannot reach due to obstruction by an object. It occupies all of the space behind an opaque object with light in front of it. The cross section of a shadow is a two-dimensional silhouette, or reverse projection of the object blocking the light.
