The Morning Light

Early morning on the 4th of July, I opened the vertical blinds in my kitchen and the sun shot through the cobalt blue bottle that I had left on the counter the night before. I twisted the bottle around, fascinated with the electric blue "shadows" that it cast on the white laminate surface. Thinking it might look even better if I added some complementary color, I grabbed the small orange cut-glass I picked up in Prague and added it to the path of the light. A little spill of water for some added reflection, and my still life was complete. Shot with a Canon XTi, ISO100, 24-105mm lens @ 105mm, f/7.1 @125 sec.
