Bottle against the light

32/52 for the group 52 in Twenty Eleven

This week's theme was: Against the light / Flare

Everyone else is posing lovely flares against the sun, but our weather just wasn't cooperating. In fact it's been so gloomy that I've started using my SAD lightbox again. I therefore played around with photographing a plastic water bottle against the light of the lightbox and I hope this is OK for the theme, even though it was taken indoors.

Thanks. :)

Actually, taking a photo of a bottle reflecting and refracting the light was one of the first tasks on the digital photography course I took a few years ago. However, this is better than the shots I took then, which at least means I'm learning something!

That's lovely, Helen - and may well be a welcome change from what everyone else is doing :)

Thanks. It is rather different to the others and the moderators have deemed it acceptable. It is taken looking into the light, it's just not natural light.

Thanks. It's amazing what you can do with a plastic bottle of water! :)

I'm sorry you told me it was a cheap, plastic bottle...

I thought it was a solid, glass crystal sculpture! :o)

I love the texture of this, it makes a cheap plastic bottle look like crystal.
