We Got Drama, Mama!





Got light? Then you got drama! I was reflecting (pun or no pun intended, either way, it works!) on how without light, we don't get these lovely shadows throughout the day. And, how, at certain times of the day, particularly as sunset approaches, the drama increases tenfold.

Yesterday afternoon we actually got a bit of precipitation-not a heck of a lot in town, but looking 10 miles east at the majestic Sandia mountain, it was getting it all. And, as the sun dipped lower into the horizon, the clouds that had enshrouded the mountain parted to reveal its work. The quality of the light at this brief moment in time is heavenly. But, fleeting it is, and within a matter of seconds, it changes-as though someone had their hand on the 'volume' knob. The shot is grainy because it's the zoom full on in my cell phone-my husband actually pulled over to the side of the road so that I could try to capture this oh so fleeting moment! Definitely a GH (great husband), won't you say?

Those mountains certainly parade some grand beauty in that lovely afternoon light. And love the bold art of the shadows and light in the first photo.

It must be amazing to watch these kind of mountains in different seasons and lights...
I've been outside most of the days - it's sunny and warm, no time to sit inside.
Have a good week!
