Light of Childhood

By GarrathE
Without a description this photo would be meaningless. (Hint to some of my favourite contributors who never type one.)

The subject here, my attic office with a north-west facing window, is totally irrelevant here.

What I am trying to capture is the flood of golden light from the sun that is about 10 minutes away from dropping below the skyline. It invokes a very strong memory of staying with my Nanna at weekends around fifty years ago between the ages of four and eight when her living room, which faced the same way, would be flooded with this golden light as I was being given supper before being packed off to bed.

Three lovely shots, the best of which I think, is the moon one.

For me, the warmth of that light in V1 - you can almost feel it...

An explanation makes all the difference to an image and its title, as you have so well proved here, Garrath. What glorious light, must be a wonderful attic/office to work in. Three fine images, well captured. Carol
