Light and hope

The tradition of Lucia is my favourite time of year:

When the darkness is lit up with candles and song.

The light comes in many forms —

Whether it is the hope

For better times to come


Or as a metaphor for love and compassion:

Those two metaphorical candles that drive out the darkness.

  1. Fiona, that first shot of the choir is just beautiful! I love the way you captured the candlelight.

    And the final shot is MAGNIFICENT. Not only the image itself but also the feeling you get when you look at it – utter peace and serenity. It actually looks like a painting.

    Bellissima, my friend!

  4. I love the choir singing by candlelight. I love the Sankta Lucia tradition which I was lucky enough to be part of one year in a Swedish community over here. Beautiful soft pink lighting in that third shot.
