Give light and people will find the way


I have to admit that I wasn't expecting much when I took this picture. Around this image is a lot of "junk". Buildings, cars, highways and people surround the frame of this image. It appears to be a quiet area; however, it is everything but tranquil. I do think the image captures November in the way I see it. November is a transitional month, leaving behind the warmth and brilliant colors of autumn while preparing to welcome white, snow-covered fields of winter. I like how the warm yellow light from the lantern contrasts with the icy-cold moisture stuck to the tree branches. The flares....an extra bonus in the image.

Nice image--great idea. I think I spend too much time in the house. You come up with some nice ideas because you're out and about so much.
