My response to Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Landscapes or Seascapes…
Sand, sea, sky, a couple of seagulls and serenity. St. John, US Virgin Islands.
This is my response to the WordPress weekly photo challenge: Refraction. I took these photos in 2011 while visiting with friends in St. John, US Virgin Islands.
I was very happy to capture that little bit of a mirage along with the slight alpha shape of the sun as the light was bent through the atmosphere. Some of the very center of the sun was blown out. I cloned-in the surrounding color, but I’m not sure if I’m happy with that. Constructive feedback in the comments below would be helpful!
I also came across this quote by J.R.R. Tolkien from Tree and Leaf.
“Man, Sub-creator, the refracted light through whom is splintered from a single White to many hues, and endlessly combined in living shapes that move from mind to mind.”
It reminds me that we are all individual expressions of the One Universal Light with the power and responsibility of sub/co-creators. We can help or hurt. Hinder or facilitate. Create or destroy. The choice and the struggle is ours from moment to moment, circumstance to circumstance. Are we an asset or a detriment to creation and our fellow co-creators?
Wishing you a wonderful rest-of-the-week.
