This weekly photo challenge is about ‘refraction’. Photography is painting with available or manipulated light. Light is one of the most welcome instruments when looking through a camera. Sometimes it bends, sometimes it contrasts and stands out to a part of a photo. Sometimes it just evenly shows what is there to marvel.
A view from a mountain. The Croagh Patrick is a place where Roman Catholics from all over the world walk in the footsteps of Saint Patrick. Climbing the mountain – regardless of one’s personal believe or persuasion – is a journey inside, a path of personal growth. Here is a view on the way down when one can focus on the horizon instead of the mountain. And yes the light is amazing, the views are breathtaking.
