Looking for light

It’s gone ten o’clock at night

And a strange creature with camera

Goes outside looking for the light.

Strange creature

She finds it

In the heart of a flower,

Heart

In the magic

Of sunbathing leaves,

Leaves

In a rainbow

Floating in the clouds

Rainbow

And in the beauty

Of her daughter’s face.

  2. Each one captures the imagination. We were just looking for a rainbow here–rain with a break of sun.

  3. Gorgeous – every one of those shots. And to think that they were taken so late at night!

    June 30, 2014 at 15:24

  4. Wonderful light moods!
    Only the first looks like a gnom from a fairytale, with his grey stone body ;-)

  17. That is incredible to have such light so late in the evening. It is, indeed, magical when it plays on leaves and faces that are dear to us.

    June 30, 2014 at 17:06

  41. Gorgeous shots! The last one is unique!

    July 1, 2014 at 07:06

  42. I have heard the ‘white nights’ can cause sleeplessness in Scandinavia. Here in southern England we do at least get six hours of darkness, although where I grew up in Yorkshire it was more like five hours. It is good to see you put those extra hours to good use, Fiona – the light is so lovely!

    July 1, 2014 at 08:34

    • When I first came to Sweden, I was driven mad by the not being able to sleep. But now I’m used to it!

    Very beautiful. You won’t find light here that time of the evening!

    July 2, 2014 at 01:28

  71. A beautifully illustrated ode to the joys of light-filled summer nights! (Though I must say that your oddly distorted shadow looks a bit like a Yeti or as we in the Pacific Northwest call them (even though we don’t see them), a “Bigfoot”.

    July 2, 2014 at 03:29

  72. Beautiful and colorful images, are the perfect illustration of the mood title, the first one is amazing and mysterious!
