Weekly Competition No. 41: Natural Light

Photography is all about light. What I hope to see this week is pictures which make use of natural light in order to make their mark.

Black and white photographs rely on interesting light just as much as, or even more than, colour pictures. So feel free to submit either.

But no sunsets or sunrises, please (unless they are incidental to the main theme of the picture).

As ill-luck would have it, I am going to be away next week, but I will try and use Belinda's technique to ensure I am not too late in getting the judging done.

I don't want to alter the deadline, but it would be helpful if as many pictures as possible could be submitted by Friday night, when I know I shall have Internet access.

Good luck!

Keywords: Charming, polite, and generally agreeable.

The cathedral in St Malo has the most intense stained glass windows. The lights just cascades around the whole interior and here spills across a secluded corner, casting patterns of multi-coloured sunlight.
