Spreading Light

“There are two ways of spreading light; to be the candle or the mirror that reflects it.”
Edith Wharton 1862-1937

I like the morning light that is surrounding the Sydney Opera House in this shot. The main light is coming from the sun off to the left and the fill light is being reflected from tall office buildings off to the right. The dots on the water are the sun rays bouncing off the lower windows of the opera house.

  1. I've always wanted to go to Australia. This photo doesn't help. Really nice shot, undoubtedly for some travel brochure or web site.

  12. I know that light! How wonderful. Not sure I would be as happy camping with so many people in the shot above ... But the area looks exquisite. Just like the Opera House.
