WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge Twinkle


This week, for the WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge share with us your photos of twinkling light. You will need to find a light source and a reflective surface in order to capture a twinkle, but those are the only limitations. Your photo could be the sparkle of an ornament, as in the photo I’ve shared. Perhaps it is a crisp catchlight in the eyes of a loved one, or the millions of twinkles in the waves of a body of water as a sunrise’s first rays appear. Maybe you’d like to try your hand at nighttime photography, and capture the sparkle of stars. Where there is light, there will be a twinkle

American poet John Greenleaf Whittier said,

“The windows of my soul I throw wide open to the sun.”


As visual creatures, we are drawn to light. For thousands of years, we’ve gathered around fires in the darkness, soothed by the glow of embers, and warmed by the dance of the flames. We revel in the sunshine of summertime. The sparkle of gemstones or moonlight on water inspires us to poetry. The ceremonial use of light has been practiced for centuries, by many religions and for many different kinds of celebrations.


We love the light.
