Cosmic Photo Challenge: The Dark and the Light

When I read Dale’s prompt for the Cosmic Photo Challenge: The Dark and the Light I thought it was a good one.

Twenty four hours and half a dozen ideas for a post later I was having second thoughts about how good a prompt it was. In fact I started writing this having finally decided on a theme only to rethink it and change tack completely before going back to my first choice.

The Dark. Two photos of Black Terns taken as they fed over a road side marsh in Saskatchewan, Canada.

The Light. Two photos of Common Terns mating on the Lake Huron shoreline in Southampton, Ontario, Canada.

Thanks Dale. Having had a few ideas for the challenge I decided to keep it simple in the end. Now I’ve posted other ideas have come to me, I thought of salt and pepper as I was typing this.

I actually set up a table top shot with small black and silver torches and after taking some photos I put them on the computer and they didn’t work for me so I didn’t bother editing any.

I thought it would be, I took shots with various combinations of the torches switched on and swapped the black torch for a dark blue anodized aluminium one but none of them worked for me.
