Debbieโ€™s one-word photo theme for this week is Light, and I found myself wondering how I could take an interesting looking photo to highlight light. I have an incense burner with stars and the Moon cut out, and I thought both starlight and moonlight together with candlelight would be ideal to highlight light. I set about taking photos, in the dark, to highlight light even more, but things seemed a little too dark for a light theme. I also have an LED lantern, so I placed it behind the burner, and it provided a rather nice glow around the burner. And there we have it. My response to Light.

        1. We had a very Spring-like day today… most relaxing – although some are saying we’re due to get the tail-end of your Storm Stella this weekend. It’s all very changeable at the moment, VK!
