Skywatch Friday: Morning Light

IMG 9504

Out and about early Sunday morning, I found myself just plain enjoying the way the morning light moved horizontally across the landscape and played with my perception of depth and dark. Looking up was a visual adventure.

  7. I see what you mean. At first glance, the branch in foreground that's shaded looks like a shadow of the one in background that's lit. And since we don't expect to see a shadow in front of something that's lit, our eye automatically assigns the foreground branch to the background. But there's still something not-right about that arrangement because the shadow is still across the front of the...

    Yeah, it really plays with your depth perception.

    Cool shot (if a little unsettling).

  8. It does look like a Halloween tree! And your beautiful blue skies do look "heavenly"! We're SO gray here and have been for several days, so I enjoyed yours all the more!

    Have a great weekend, Sandy!

  23. When I read Mojo's comment, I realized that she had summed up that effect so perfectly!! The shadow appears to be in front of the object being shadowed!! I realize full well that the nearer branches are still in shadow while the upper branches have caught the morning light, but I like the other description better!!
