Photo Challenge – Lens-Artists: The Sun Will Come Up Tomorrow

Our prompt this week is “the sun will come up tomorrow”.

And it’s a good thing that the sun does show up every morning too. We get many benefits from sunshine. The sun improves your sleep, reduces stress and helps maintain your bones. It also helps to control depression and can even help you maintain your weight Unfortunately that only works if you get your sunshine in the early morning. I’m not a morning person so I can’t vouch for that statement.

These ladies at Brookgreen Gardens know the benefits of sunlight and they don’t need to worry about sunscreen either.

The piece above is one of my favorites at Brookgreen Gardens. It’s a sculpture of Mikhail Baryshnikov by Greg Wyatt. It’s magical – his leap and his arms outstretched to touch the sun. He looks suspended in midair.

Regular Random – Five Minutes with the Sun

The rules of this challenge are to pick out an object and photograph it for five minutes only using different lighting and angles. ( I underscored this because I have problems following the time limit.)

Fortunately we have missed out on the worst of Hurricane Irma but we are still experiencing a lot of rain and wind gusts up to 50 – 55 miles per hour and losing power off and on.  Hurricane Matthew last year was enough for us, thank you very much!  Anyway, there’s no sun today so I decided to make my own.


I love suns and have one in just about every room of the house.  This one sits in my hall and I pulled it out in front of the window to get what light I could.

Thanks to Desley Jane for hosting.  You can find her post here:
