Light and glass have always fascinated me, because as the light changes, it casts a different character on glass.
This was shot outdoors, in a garden during a pre-Christmas function on Friday 18 December. I had walked past this table several times but when I did so after sunset, the last few minutes of dusk cloaked the upturned glasses with a bluish tinge. Suddenly, an ordinary scene turned into something that looked like an ice sculpture.
I shot this horizontal frame first, then I took a vertical. This shot, however, has a slim advantage because it effectively encompasses more shapes, swirls and delicate tinges of bluish light. Just for the record, the shot was taken at 8.34 pm.
I do not crop, enhance or post-edit my images in any way. Shot with a Pentax K100D, using a Sigma 18-125mm lens. F8, 1/90 sec, ISO 400, focal length 125mm.
