Weekly Photo Challenge: Shine ( Through Trees and Leaves 6 )

This week’s photo challenge is Shine.

I like photographing against the light; in particular I like photographing trees and leaves against in coming light.

If the camera is set as Automatic, this usually poses a problem as the light sensor will sense there is strong light and the aperture will automatically reduce, giving a picture which is too dark.dsc_0282

I intend to upload a series of photos which has been shot against the light.

Here is a photo taken in a Chinese garden in Zhangjiajie; or was it a scene in the movie On Golden Pond? Haha!

Please enjoy!

Here is a photo taken up in the hills of  South Korea in the Autumn. I have never published it as it contains too much yellow and gold colors. Ideally, I like pictures like this with a balance of green or other colors; on this one, it not only shines, it glitters.

Please enjoy!

This picture taken on the eastern side of the New Territories in Hong Kong illustrates my point.

Dark clouds hung over but penetrated by colorful light.
