Title: “Sunrise in Bar Harbor, Maine on Mount Desert Island”
Photo Credits: Robert F. Bukaty
Location: Acadia National Park, Maine
“The sun just breaks over the horizon in Bar Harbor, Maine on Mount Desert Island (MDI). This view is from the short causeway between Thompson Island (on the left) and Mount Desert Island (on the right). Thompson Island is within the municipality of Trenton, Maine but is also part of Acadia National Park.” (x)
This photo stood out to me mainly because of its symmetrical nature. I am very much intrigued by the glassiness of the water and its ability to reflect not only the physical objects like the trees and the clouds but the vibrant negative spaces created by the sun’s light. Looking at this photo makes me feel as if I am about to take a deep breath of cold, refreshing, air. Even though I know the morning air in this picture would be quite cold, it is evident by the surface of the water that there is no wind. The rich red/orange tones of the sunlight add so much warmth to this photo and is enhanced by the dark almost blackness of the silhouetted trees. I would love to be on this beach with a hot cup of coffee and the companionship of someone I care about…it’s too beautiful not to share.
I took this picture myself at Universal. This has a really summery feeling to me because of the way the sunlight is hitting the brick walls, which are already a very warm color as it is. All the light bouncing off the brick walls and shining through the skylights gives it a very warm welcoming tone. Overall it just feels like the atmosphere is sort of like the peak of the summer where you can see the heat rising off the streets/
6:10 AM April 12, 2017 My room, Hofstra University
Light coming in from the window during the sun rising. A soft orange color lightly coloring the inside of my room and shining through the window. Very warm and subtle light.
At a time in which I am about to fall asleep the angelic light gracefully touches my room. The bed is lightly grazed with soft orange sunlight that glows from the window. Leaving the shutters completely open had allowed the sun to come in unfiltered. It freely expanded into the room with the subtle hint that the day had begun.
Photo taken by me
The harsh sunlight brightly washes over the scene. The colors of the flowers stand bright with the fun reflections of the pin reminding me of the place I always go in the summer. A mini golfing place right down the street to me has the same wooden boundaries with brightly colored flowers and little metallic pinwheels. There’s something really fun about the pinwheel, it’s a cheesy addition to the beauty of nature right next to it.
- This photo came from a fruit salad blog post at http://www.tasteofhome.com/recipes/course/salads/top-10-fruit-salad-recipes
- Sunlight from the bright sunny day outside is streaming in through the window and onto the neatly set table, ready with a cool refreshing snack for a break from the heat of the summer day. The warm, bright light, reflects off the cool, clean cutlery and the juicy fruit giving the image a happy, jubilant, and refreshing feeling.
- Thursday Morning in my dorm room.
- Sun light shining under my blinds and hitting my coffee in just the right way.
- I despise mornings, I need an hour and about 4 coffees to really feel human, but I’ve decided I need to wake up earlier. So, Thursday I woke up with enough time to make coffee in my dorm instead of buying on my way to class. My blinds are all the way down but the golden sun light is creeping under the lower edge and landing in a sharp oblong trapezoid shape on my desk. I set down my coffee in the pool of morning sun light and the way the light hit the curve of the cup. It looked so soft and cozy, it was everything that was right about mornings.
2) This photo was taken by me in the summer hanging out in botanical gardens.
3) Theme: Single subject, Single light source
4) I chose this photo because the sunlight on the middle right side catches the eye. I like how the color is white and it is bright, warm, and inviting. If you look closely you can see the right side of my face slightly brighter than my left side as the sunlight reflects on my face. It is a simple selfie.
- Student Center back dining room, 3/9/17 in the evening
- I was eating lunch with a bunch of my friends and there was a strip of sunlight on my friend’s face.
- After having a really rough day on Thursday, this one ray of sunlight on my friend seemed like the light at the end of a tunnel. It was really relaxing and overall just made me feel a lot better about the type of day I was having.
- My camera roll
- my friends and I hadn’t seen each other for a while and when we saw each other again outside of Davison, my friend Kyra hugged our friends, Meghan and Meghan, and the whole moment was just really happy and the lighting was really perfect and emphasized the happiness of the moment.
