Round Robin Photo Challenge: Shooting In Low Light (Inside And Out)

RRC: Shooting In Low Light (Inside and Out)
Suggested by Terri, author of the blog, Ways I See The World.

Low Light photography can be really challenging! That is exactly why I thought it would be a great challenge to take on, as we approach those lovely shorter days of the year. I have the hardest time taking photos at dusk on sunny days. If there is even a little cloud cover, I seem to do much better. I am not sure why, I suppose it might have something to do with the natural filter clouds provide. There is less glare to worry about. Anyway, I tapped into my archives for this one, and came up with as many different examples of photography I have done in either very low light or at times no light at all. Here are the results...

"Light gives of itself freely, filling all available space. It does not seek anything in return; it asks not whether you are friend or foe. It gives of itself and is not thereby diminished."
