The Light in the Poconos

D70 4093crop tighter The Light in the Poconos

It’s often said that photography is all about light.  That’s not absolutely true, but there is truth in it.  And light is very important to my work.  But, every once in a while, the light does something pretty amazing and on a rare occasion, there’s a photographer there to record it.  That’s what happened on this day last summer when I was shooting in the Poconos with the always amazing model, BlueRiverDream.

I was working on a composition with Blue’s figure and this waterfall when I saw the beautiful pool of golden light behind her.  The sun was hitting that water from the perfect angle at the ideal time of day to create that glow.  But, while I was adjusting the camera position to make the photo work, I saw the rainbow appear over the waterfall.  All those colors, all that light!  It was just so beautiful!

I didn’t really know how much of the color I’d been able to capture until yesterday when I was going through that shoot looking for something to enter in an upcoming show.  I have been working my way through my un-edited shoots in the order they were shot and posting them here as I go, but I really couldn’t resist jumping the line with this one.  Every once in a while magic happens.
