From within or from behind, a light shines through us upon things, and makes us aware that we are nothing, but the light is all - Ralph Waldo Emerson

R. W. Emerson said lots of things I don't really understand and this is one of them! If light shines through us and we see we are nothing, we must be ghosts! Yikes! :-))

Beautiful photo, though, because of that lovely light of which he spoke.

Glowing was the word that came to mind ... it is a beautiful image :D

Ash said...

Thanks for your comments everyone! This was one of the first photos I took the day I landed in Italy. It's straight-off the camera. You don't need photoshop when you've got an Italian sunset and Italian lemons, right ?

@Lowell - Your comment had me in splits. That was really, really funny!!

Anns Art said...

Wow - Beautiful photo.

Kalyan said...

Oh wow... that's just fantastic lighting...a true photographer's delight of getting such a delightful moment.

The strong sidelight gives the fruit a beautiful molded look that I like. Fine imagery and words to match.

A sua fotografia é tão bela que se eu fosse uma pintora eu me inspiraria nela para pintar uma natureza morta.
Parabéns pela sua sensibilidade!
Bom fim de semana!
