August Theme Day - Night

 
Posted by Picasa


I took this picture of one of the solar pathway lights in my front yard last night. This is what the light looks like when you are standing directly above it looking down at the pattern the light makes as it shines on the grass surrounding it.

Wow, I never would have been able to guess what it was!

That is an interesting photo. I thought, from the portal, that it was some catch of an eclipse. It's a really cool angle!

Darla said...

That is a cool looking photo Lois. It's so hard to believe it's August already.........

B SQUARED said...

Very unusual and very creative. Well done.

Leif Hagen said...

Funky, Lois very cool! I had to really look at it for a few seconds! Nice NIGHT shot!

Clytie said...

Fantastic shot! When I first looked at it, I mistook it for one of those Hubble Telescope images of far distant galaxies. Very beautiful.

Babooshka said...

That is an astonishing image.

Rob said...

Wow, that's amazing! Never seen it this way!

That is a neat picture. I never saw a green solar walkway light before. It must be nice.

I slept under a blanket last night. This has been the coldest July ever recorded here in Ohio where we live. And it was only 59 F here this morning. August is starting out to be more of the same. I fear a climate change is on the way and each year will disrupt the lives of more birds and butterflies to say nothing about the polar bears.

OK Lois, how did you ever think of this? I never would have! This is fantastic...such a neat idea, and I love the way the light looks. I'm gonna try it too!

Amazing! It means you have very creative mind toward photography.

That is so creative, Lois! Fantastic job. I was trying to figure out what sky light gave off such beautiful emanations.

This is a work of art!

This photo just fills my eyes with it's unique loveliness. How creative you are!

Don and Krise said...

Your photo was fooling with my brain. Here I thought I was looking up, and it's actually your grass. Cool shot Lois. Very original.

bfarr said...

Incredible shot. At first I thought it was some sort of fireworks. I will have to try that sometime.

Ursel said...

I guessed it's an eye of a peacock and never expected that. Very creative shot and beautiful image too!

Julie said...

Lois, this reminds me of one of those images that changes depending on where you concentrate! It is very well captured, so simple and so very close to home. The green of the grass and the spokes of the lamp are so effective. Very good eyes for spotting that this would work.

Frank said...

Wow, too cool. You really thought about "night" and found a most interesting way to show it. Great Lois.

James said...

That is awesome Lois.

Tamera said...

Wow, what a cool picture!

By the way, do you mind MY APPRECIATION?

JM said...

Lois, this is such a fantastic shot! What a clever idea! Glad you explained what it is as I would never have guessed. Great job!

Halcyon said...

Very neat. I had no idea what it was!

Nikki Beaumont said...

Lois!!! That is SOOO neat. I thought that it was some sort of space photo. That is such a neat looking photo! I love that Fio said it looks like a pupil of an eye. Awesome photo!
