Quite often light transforms common places into absolutely dreamy magical ones. More often it is not done by color, but by a play of light and shadows (chiaroscuro), like on the picture below. All we have to do is to notice those places in a right moment.

Chiaroscuro (Italian) is the use of strong contrasts between light and dark, usually bold contrasts, affecting a whole composition.


I took this photo on a trail in a hot sunny day. Looking lovely in color it was definitely asking for black & white treatment to make the chiaroscuro more vivid.
