Dining on light

Summers are a wonderful time, with great hot light in the middle of the day and lovely reddish tones toward the end.  Mornings are a joy as the sun creeps over the horizon, signaled by the spreading light, then the first flash of yellow.

I often draw on the daily fluctuation of colour in my paintings, and being up early every day, I get to enjoy each new beginning.  Even after the sun has gone, there are still traces of the sun in the high sky, purples, magentas which can be detected with suitable long time exposures using a camera, when the eye only sees the dark.
