Backlighted Water, Dragoon Mountains, AZ

I'm a backlight junkie.  I love shooting into the sun, despite the challenges it poses with exposure and lens flare.  Or maybe partly because of them.

Backlight is magical behind translucent things like cholla spines, fall leaves, and a head of blonde hair.  It can also set off a dramatic silhouette, and allows for creation of a sun star if conditions are right.

Athmospheric, Kofa Mountins, AZ
Lighted from behind, a foggy or dusty scene is transformed.  In fact, backlight gives an opportunity to show a new perspective.

All this is true, but mostly I love the luscious and beautiful depth of emotion that's available in a backlighted scene.

There are worse addictions, right?
