Blinding Light

DAY 114

24 APR 09

This is a cabbage plant my son brought home from school. My husband repotted it for him, and it's now sitting on the end table next to the window. On Day 114, the sunlight was coming in through the blinds and doing a cool stripey backlighting thing on the cabbage leaf.

The photo title? I know the light isn't blinding. Blinds Light would have been more accurate, but it just plain sounds stupid. Blind Light sounds completely wrong. Therefore, Blinding Light it is.

Post-processing: noise reduction, sharpening, curves adjustment, border addition, and I added a lens flare just for fun.


  1. This is great - I love the light and blinding sounds fine to me!

  2. It's a great title and I like how the sun is right on the edge of the leaf. Cool shot!

  3. Nice pic. I love the look of the sunlight back lighting the plant. And the lens flare is cool, too.

  4. Thank you all for your kind words. Shows me I was on the right track with this one!
