Friday Photo: Morning at Punta Cana in the Dominican Republic

Without light a photographer would be as a noisy clanging cymbal in a black hole as the absence of light means the absence of a photograph.

Conversely, there are times when the light seemingly steals the show from the object that the light is illuminating.

In the early morning light, I was walking the beach at the Punta Canta Resort & Club which is the sister resort of the Tortuga Bay Resort in which we were staying.

As you can see, there was a fair amount of cloud cover this morning.  However, experience has taught me that these clouds and just the right amount of morning sun peeking out can create a seriously dramatic scene.

These thatched roof buildings seemed to me to be a wonderful subject for a photograph.  However, when I first spied them, they were draped in drab, gray, ugly light.

I decided to wait and see if the sun might pop out and paint these structures with all the glory of its morning light.

My patience rewarded me with the most beautiful golden light painted across the buildings and the water.

Thanks God!
