Skywatch Friday: Liquid Light

I took this photo with my phone while I was kayaking with my daughter on the Intracoastal Waterway last month.  This was one of those photos that didn't look anything like what I saw.  It's silly, but I have to remember that the camera is not my eye is not the moment's r in the kayak.  The elliptical shape of the sun is nothing like the drifting orb I saw.  Still, the light in this image illuminated clouds I know I didn't notice at the time.  It's all good, and my little HTC is fun.

  1. The sun appears to be searing the sky. It is most difficult to capture a scene as one sees it.

  9. To know that the moment we capture is nothing like the one we see and feel with our senses is very wise, my friend. I love the title you've given this one. Liquid Light. So beautiful...

  16. It's lovely -- I'm often surprised as well when I download, but not as pleasantly. (Usually my surprises are telephone wires or something similar, that my eyes just blanked out.)

    What a lovely memory of a kayak trip. We live very near the Intracoastal when we're in Florida .... come on down ;>)

  17. Great pic, I'm really not into a literal expression of what I see with my eyes. I freely modify the pics I take, especially with my phone, to get the effect that I like.

  20. I like the view! Today's cameras, even the small ones, have a greater tolerance to bright light and darkness than our eyes.
