“Natural light” is this week’s theme, one that’s right up my camera lens. I’m enthralled by light. As a morning person who feels that if I didn’t get walking before sunrise I’m running late, I have lots of sunrise photos…so I’m going to avoid those. Those of you who follow me have seen lots of them in various posts. Let’s go with something different, something smaller than grand vistas, which have already been done beautifully by our hostesses.

I’ve shared this photo before, but it’s one of my favorites for showcasing natural light.

Since I held off on sunrises, let’s grab a Wyoming sunset to close.

I have a few more shots of milkweed to share over the next days, but I’ll be on the road for the better part of three days as I drive to Arizona to find a rental house for us. After being on the the road for almost ten hours for two days and eight or so the third, I won’t have much time for reading posts. As always, I’ll answer comments. I’ll be sharing photos that strike my fancy, so we’ll see what comes along. I’ll keep you updated and also, I hope, entertained.
