Weekly Photo Challenge: Half-Light

On board the Norwegian Getaway. February 2016

This week’s photo challenge is “half-light”.  It reminds me of this photo that I took of the sun setting into the horizon just as the day turned from light to dark.  There’s not a lot of light here.  I took this on the third night at sea on board the Norwegian Getaway as we were just settling into dinner time.  You could say that we were also “half-full” as no one is ever starving or famished if they are living in a developed country (since we are so rich in resources) but yet we were also very eager for the start of dinner service. XD

The state of “half-light” is beautiful because you can’t see exactly what is there in the distance but you have to rely on what you know is there.  It can also be a very dangerous thing to rely or assume something when it is not.  It’s quite contradicting actually!  It makes it mysterious and you want to see more.  It is also a state that you have a limited time to capture.  Once it is gone into the “full” zone, it is not considered “half-light” anymore.

No poems or inspirational lines to quote from a book for this challenge for me.  Just a photo. 🙂

  1. I thought everyone was full all the time on a cruise. 🙂 Nice light you caught.

      Haha, I guess that was why I said “half-full” ;). We couldn’t have been too full since we were just beginning dinner service, and definitely not “full-full” or else we wouldn’t have strolled into dinner that night 🙂 Thanks Janet!

    I love the sense of infinity in your photograph. Great insight about how we rely on what we think is there. Beautiful light!
