Sorry we were all struggling to post with parties / house guests / no good internet available but better late than never. Had such good morning light up here lately it`s bound to go all dull now but do the best you can in the slightly shorter working window.

As long as you didnt make it with a smoke machine. Simply give us an image that shows great use of natural light.

All we've had here this week week is various kinds of fog, from thick and freezing some early mornings through to thinner and drizzly in the afternoons. Not looking promising for this subject at all although the forecast suggests that it might eventually clear on Sunday.

A foggy scene can be quite appealing, and it is natural light after all.

Very overcast and wet here too  :(

But may enter with this shot, as I have to try and regain some mojo to lift the old spirits a bit.

Just taken a picture much like that for a competition titled "new", bit of a deja vu moment for a minute.

I normally take all my photos in natural light, but this one, I specifically took for the competition.

A leaf on my wet terrace, as the sun is just reaching said terrace.

I've been out of the frame for a while (please excuse the pun!) but hoping to get an entry in this week. Have an idea.   
May the Force be with you.
