Light brings colour


“Light is therefore colour, and shadow the privation of it”
– JMW Turner, 1818

Búðakirkja, the black church at Buðir, Iceland, September 2018



I’m late this week but here, at last, is my weekly quotation-inspired image.

If the quote inspires a pictorial or wordy post from you, do feel free to link in or to pop your URL in the comments.

  1. Love the contrast of the rainbow with the church, Fascinating. I also wondered why the church was black but I guess since it is Iceland they have snow more than not and you need to see the church, but maybe green instead of black. Interesting photos.

    1. Yes. I prefer that one. I was balancing on a wall for the first one and didn’t have the athletic ability to get into a better spot to shoot that one. I was on terra firma for the second one!
