Vine light


28Aug2015

As opposed to divine light, this is a sun worshipping vine reaching toward the rays of the sun. I shot for a backlit look and played with a variety of angles, finally settling for this one which gave a tiny bit of the sun shooting into the picture. I think though some photographers try to avoid such artifacts, for me this expresses the reality of plants reaching for the light. You can tell from the twisted form of this vine it has been growing in a lot of different directions as it chases the sun through my yard.
