1) 1/29/15, 10:30pm, Lounge of Nassau Hall
2) An outdoor light that was aimed at a tree created a shadow of the branches in the snow.
3) My lighting moment was wonderful. Everyone in the lounge thought I was a weirdo when I stopped my friends to appreciate the moment I was currently having. The intricate twists and turns of the trees branches was represented so clearly in shadow on the freshly fallen snow. The snow being white and slightly illuminated by the moon, created a beautiful contrast between the light and darkness of shadow. The source of light hitting the tree also created little glimmers of sparkles in the reflections of water droplets that had turned to ice, which hung from the branches. The effect was very haunting in a way that surprised me. Yes, it was beautiful. But the chaos of the way the branches were entangled, combined with the lack of color told a sad story. It felt like death, as winter often resembles.
