Chiaroscuro–The Interplay Of Light And Shadow

Evening Light On Mount Temple

The evening light warms the top of Mount Temple.

The rays of sunlight create interesting shadows in the crevices and cracks near the peak of the mountain. The bright illumination helps show more details.

Light On Mount Babel

Again the late afternoon light hits the top of (this time) Mount Babel. The cross lighting enhances the texture of the rock faces. This image was preprocessed using Photomatix’s Tone Mapping to retain detail in the large shadow area. Interesting light and shadows can create much more interesting photographs, so be on the look out for light and shadows wherever you go.

In the best light…
