Listening to the light...

"Drama Queen"
Longwood Gardens
Kennett Square, Pennsylvania

"It is the light that reveals, light that obscures, light that communicates.
It is light I "listen" to.
The light late in the day has a distinct quality, as it fades toward the darkness of evening.
After sunset there is a gentle leaving of the light, the air begins to still, and the quiet descends.
I see magic in the quiet light of dusk.
I feel quiet, yet intense energy in the natural elements of our habitat.
A sense of magic prevails.
A sense of mystery.
It is a time for contemplation, for listening - a time for making photographs."

-John Sexton

I never go out intending to shoot a landscape.  My intent is to capture the light.  Wherever it decides to show itself to me.  Sometimes, a landscape just happens to photo bomb my light.

Here's where I "link up" today.
