Beam of Light – Photography by Mary Mikawoz

In this photograph, the winter sunlight blazons through the sky and passes through the sunflowers as if touching and kissing them good-bye before the sun sets. I love this black and white photo because it looks like it was painted in an artistic fashion and yet it is a photograph.

Sundogs Over Substation

Sundogs Over Substation

I took this photograph this afternoon near Gimli, Manitoba over the substation. The sun is fairly low in the sky as it is winter time. The Sundogs on either side of the sun indicate that it is cold outside or that it will be. Both are true in this case. With temperatures in the minus 20 degrees Celsius range, or minus 4 Fahrenheit, you know it is cold.  

Here is the current forecast from Environment Canada, “A bitterly cold north wind will bring extreme wind chills of minus 40 to much of southern Manitoba overnight and into Thursday morning.” 

I like the brilliant star effect around the sun and the way the Sundogs are like little rainbow arcs around at the sun’s sides.

Dramatic Sky

Dramatic Sky

I took this photograph one cool fall night many moons ago in Assiniboine Park. The sun was setting in the west and the sky turned a multitude of magnificent colours including pink, blue, purple, red, orange, and yellow. It is a veritable rainbow of colours. The trees are dark silhouetted and seem to be dramatic or mysterious in their own way. 

I love the branches of the trees as they extend towards the sky yearning for more attention from the sun and their impending growth. They cry out to the sun, “Please give us more. We need you.” 

Throughout the seasons, they get what they need and now as we approach winter time, we go dormant and fall asleep for awhile in plant-life hibernation.

Don’t Look

Don’t Look

Don’t Look Directly at the Sun! So, I didn’t. I hid behind a tree and basked in the glow of the sunshine emanating and peaking out at its sides. 

I love the way that the sun manages to find its way to almost everywhere in life on the Earth. It is constantly shining for our benefit and our delight. It is a source of so much good. 

According to the Reference website, “The sun has been a symbol of power, growth, health, passion and the cycle of life in many cultures and religions throughout time. Some believe it is a representation of the higher self, while others see the sun as a god to be worshiped.”

Checking You Out

Checking You Out

Somehow, I get the feeling that these iguanas are checking me out. I don’t know what gives me that idea other than I have three heads and three eyes staring back at me. They seem to be on alert status. 

This is a photograph that I took in Hawaii. I like the way these reptiles are camouflaged very well with their background. 

According to Vetstreet, “Although they don’t actually use verbal language to communicate, iguanas talk to each other through head bobbing and through movement of the flap of skin under their necks — called a dewlap. Iguanas will extend their dewlaps to say hello to each other or as a sign of being territorial.”

Fall Equinox

Fall Equinox

This is a panoramic photograph I took this morning at the shoreline of Lake Winnipeg at Little Deer at 8:30 am when it was the right time for the change of seasons Central Standards Time (CST) for this area. This is approximately 2 hours north of Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada. 

I love the beautiful golden hue and tone of the sun with its juxtaposition against the blue of the water and sky. 

I like how your eye leads you into the water of the photo with the trees framing the image nicely. It also invites you in and makes you want to go swimming but it is getting too cold for that already.

Decay

Mikawoz Decay

Decay

I was walking along the sandy beaches near the ocean at Stanley Park in Vancouver, British Columbia when I saw something interesting. It was this embedded tree in the sand. It had been decaying because of the elements of sun, wind, water and sand. It has become integrally part of the Earth once more. I like the interesting divots and features in the wood.

Jagged Mountain Tops

Jagged Mountain Tops

These are beautifully sculpted and jagged mountain tops. The sun is coming from the left side and embellishing the mountains with its hue. There is some vegetation growth up the sides and although it was summer, there is snow high up towards its peaks.

Sun Rays in Darkness

Mikawoz Sun Rays in Darkness

Sun Rays In Darkness

This is how I envision sunlight rays coming through nonstop from the sun during the night. It continues on shining down on Earth.

This is an abstract artwork made with pen and paper and photo effects.

According to Wikipedia, “Sunlight is a portion of the electromagnetic radiation given off by the Sun, in particular infrared, visible, and ultraviolet light. On Earth, sunlight is filtered through Earth’s atmosphere, and is obvious as daylight when the Sun is above the horizon. When the direct solar radiation is not blocked by clouds, it is experienced as sunshine, a combination of bright light and radiant heat. When it is blocked by clouds or reflects off other objects, it is experienced as diffused light.”

This is an iguana on a boulder getting up to sun himself. He is perched every so precariously but he has the claws to be able to climb up and balance himself.
