Sunday Post: Light

Wild, exciting, sad, lewd, shameless, fun, wicked, immoral and definitely covered in light, The evening I walked down the streets of Vegas, I saw more lights than ever before. There was a carnival atmosphere, a circus feel in the air. Las Vegas is unique.

This post is part of the challenge by Jakesprinter. Please visit http://jakesprinters.wordpress.com/2012/03/24/sunday-post-light/    to see how you can take part in this challenge

Traffic waited for the lights to change

Everything is covered in lights. even the palm trees are bathed in light.

Even the McDonald sign is like no other. It flashes and lights up, joining in the circus of lights.

Now I know that Vegas is a fantasy land.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Simple

Idaho Hills

A gentle green hillside, bare, treeless, beautiful. I took this photo in the south of Idaho in the summer of 2011. That same summer I travelled to the far north and took another photo of another simple hillside, this time in the Canadian North West Territories.

Northwest Territories, Canada

I love the simplicity of a rainbow. Just water and light, mixing together to show the glorious colours of a rainbow.

A sunset is another display of nature using simple ingredients to paint the sky and in this case, our van.

The sun is the artist who painted our car.

Remembering Prairie Sunsets

I looked at some photos taken on a trip across the country and remembered a wonderful day spent in southern Alberta. We visited the Red River Coulee with my nephew Mike and his wife Michelle.

The sun was getting low in the sky and cast a beautiful glow across the grass of the prairie.There were interesting rocks covering the coulee. this one huge rock was round and seemed out of place because it was so round. Too big to roll down the hill, although the thought did cross my mind.

In the glow.

We lingered there, watching as the sun set.

Alberta Sundown

Hanging ice over the frozen lake

I found this willow tree on the edge of the lake. The icicles were dangling from the branches.

It only takes one small light to dispell the Darkness

No matter how small your light is, the darkness cannot overcome it. so let your light shine into this dark world.
