This image is one of the ones which makes me very aware of the quality of light. It’s a simple shot of a street in Cognac around mid-day, but I find the light quite magical.
Isn’t it interesting how different the light appears depending on the time and place? I’m a great fan of diversity, so here are some very different examples, all taken in early afternoon light, but all on different days and in different places.
First up, here’s the Saint-Eutrope crypt in the town of Saintes.
Then, the Charente river as it flows through Saintes.
The bridge to Île-de-Ré, with the oyster beds in the foreground.
