  1. Wonderful light in all of these, but specially the Clinker Brick.

  2. Hi the light on the brick is absolutely amazing, pure textures captured in a instant, to me that is a photograph hard to forget, has total instant appeal in so many ways , you truly are a artist , x

  3. I finally see the light!
    My favs are the artsy Window light , along w the feeling as if I am ther in the Morning Light & Trees capture…. (Without actually having to get up that early !) Thanks!

  4. Wow- You have captured the light perfectly!

  5. Brilliant ~ there is something about some photographers who have the gift & mastery of light (which is what photography is all about) and these shots show it so well. Beautiful Jane, simply beautiful.

  6. I love high contrast golden light.

  7. These photos are marvelous! I’m so glad I’ve found your blog.

  8. You certainly have an eye for seeing and capturing unique compositions with dramatic lighting.

  9. So many different situations and all captured in such exciting light!

  10. As always…wondermous. Another lovely series, Jane.

  11. This is one of the best posts on photography I’ve had the privilege of viewing. Sums up all the classes I’ve taken. Had to share on my Facebook page 🙂 Also permanently linked it in my browser to remind me from time to time.

  12. This time around I’ve got two favorites: “clinker brick” and “boardwalk and fog.” Are these both San Francisco shots?

  13. Fabulous shots!! Loving the clinker brick….real FEEL GOOD shots…makes for a happy day!!😘

  14. Great capture Jane…I can imagine the warmth of the sun on my skin when Iook at this. Hopefully sun will soon replace the rainy Vancouver weather! Thanks for brightening my day.

  15. The clinker brick is amazing Jane! So many details that you don’t notice at first glance, but having the image captured allows you to go back and find what you otherwise would have missed!

  16. Jane you see things that others would walk by – the mood and atmosphere of each photograph is so elegant and soul-filling. You are a master of the lens, what a treat to see.

  17. Very good pictures, my favorites are the first 2 🙂

  18. Great story in shadows. Especially liked all the ones in color. Not sure why.

  19. Brilliant captures of light! I haven’t had much Internet lately so glad to catch this post.

  20. Love your board walk and morning light particularly! Great to see you here…

  21. That’s superb Jane

  22. Awesome shots and an enlightening post on how to make the best use of light in photography! Loved the quotes too 🙂

  23. Lovely set….I especially like the lines and shapes of Window Light and the Early Morning tree shadows

  24. Awesome set! I love all of them! The way you captured all the different lights is amazing.

  25. Your timing is impeccable–exceeded only by your eye.

  26. Great shots Jane, the 1st one is just magical – perfect lighting.

    • Hi Mark- I was walking in SF a couple of days ago and that late afternoon sun was amazing. Then I saw the shadows of the brick and the pedestrian. Very cool. Glad you like it- thank you.

  27. Loved your take on the theme this week Jane – what is more ephemeral than light? Window light would be my choice for fav – turning the otherwise mundane into lovely art.

  28. Loved Boardwalk and Fog.

Love to hear what you think...
