This week’s Photo Challenge is Illumination.
In bright light, the Christmas tree looks pretty enough… but somehow still awaiting its true moment.
Candlelight works its magic. The whole tree glows with a soft radiance. The light picks out the glitter of ornaments from the pools of darkness deep among the branches. The candles burn silently, yet flicker perceptibly from moment to moment. The rising air sets strands of tinsel subtly in motion, shimmering in the light. The tree is alive.
More photos from Christmas 2011 are here, and from Christmas 2012 here.
