a week of light and shadow

November 09, 2020  •  5 Comments

We have yet to know exactly how history will remember this week in the year 2020.  It was filled with darkness and light, light and shadow, and all the tension those conditions hold.  It reminded me of Shadow and Light Magazine, a publication for which photographer Steve Immel is shooting photographs and penning great rocks of wisdom.  It is worth investigating, as well as Steve's great blog - steveimmelphotography.com.  

The weather provided a healthy serving of conditions, and I focused on those that demonstrated the week.  Stucco walls reflecting or holding heat or cold become collectors of precipitation, including hail and snow, both of which landed against walls here.

Veronica, Debra, Donna C., Christina, Dianne, Claudia, Carolyn, Steve, Annie, Jean and Sam, and Ingrid added input and words for last week's blog.  Many thanks to all of you and others who follow the blog.  Thanks for your inspiration.

until next Monday,


a passion for the [email protected]

I don’t know how I missed these, but I just found them and they are exquisite in its originality. Steve is right, your eye catches but most of us miss. Thank you!

Pretty neat.

I always loved taking winter pictures of icy streams, winters bells and ice crystals.

I'm sure you will have plenty of those this winter again.

Your first picture reminds me of throwing spaghetti against a wall to see if it sticks and is done.

I don't know where to start, Daryl. I'm amazed and grateful that made such a big deal out of my meager efforts. You are a dear friend and your encouragement and support over the years has meant the world to me. The blog address for what it's worth is immelphoto.com but there's a link to it at steveimmelphotography.com. One way another Tim Anderson's Shadow and Light is worth a look. It features some outstanding photographs.

I'm knocked out by the abstract images you've composed out of something most of us wouldn't have seen. That's one of your gifts, to observe and see what others don't. Good call on the long horizontal almost panoramic format. Terry T will be pleased. It's very effective for the clumps of snow on the stucco walls and atop the adobe parapet.

Thanks again, mi amiga.
looking forward to more from solar geeks. So you have 97 on your meter? where does that figure into your bottom line 18kwh banked with PNM= 1233-1215.
more snow coming so want to see your eye on the next wave. Isn't urban snow a different visual beast that rural snow? ;))

I look forward to hearing more about how you two solar geeks are capturing energy from that big white ball in the sky.
