Photo by @tkbm4410 for #Lr_Light || The neon from the building signs reflected Tokyo’s Shinjuku neighborhood onto the road. To me, it looked exactly like a river made of light. When I take pictures on a rainy day, I always start from this place.⁠ •⁠ When you exit Shinjuku Station to the south and turn right, it becomes a little slope. The wet, reflective sidewalks in the rain turn the scene into a neon wonderland. When I shot this, it was raining hard, so there were fewer pedestrians than usual. Because of this, I was able to capture the reflection of the light on the road.⁠

Photo by @gartentashi for #Lr_Light || One day, I was on the search for a poppy field. There were not many poppies around my previous home. Over the years, I only found a few lonely poppies here and there. ⁠ •⁠ This year, we were moving to a new place. After one visit to our new home, I immediately saw poppies resting at the edge of a field of grains. The light was enchanting. I thought to myself, “This must be a good omen.” 😉⁠

Photo by @airpixels for #Lr_Light || My first day in China, I arrived late to Guilin and made the decision to skip sleep and go down to the Li River for sunrise.⁠ •⁠ As I travel further up the river, a fisherman starts paddling downward to meet me.⁠ •⁠ The fog is moving in and out over the river, revealing the beautiful, karst mountains in the background before it suddenly disappears again. The sun pops over the mountain, and for a second, everything looks like a fairytale.⁠

Photo by @shreyasyadav0 || It was a cold winter’s evening, and daylight was fading fast. The darkness of night was spreading across the forest. We were on our journey back, when a mysterious, cat-shaped silhouette popped up on the side of the road, peering between two trees. As we slowed to a stop, the shape appeared from the shadows. We were stunned to see a leopard!⁠ •⁠ For the past decade, I took multiple trips to this forest in search of leopards and black panthers but was never successful. I was so happy to finally capture this shot; my dedication finally paid off.⁠ •⁠ This is my favorite photo because the leopard’s eyes are gorgeous and green, just like the surrounding forest.⁠

Photo by @maxbluey for #Lr_Light || This was taken near Fürth, a small city in Bavaria. I was searching for poppies because at this time of the year poppies bloom in their full magnificence.⁠ •⁠ While I was roaming around, it started to rain, but the sun was still shining. I thought this would be the perfect shot: wet poppies kissed with the beautiful light of a warm sunset. After a few shots, I decided to change my point of view. I know that people hardly ever change their point of view, which often leads to missing the good things around them! I try to fight against that notion, so, I looked to the right and saw this amazing rainbow.⁠ •⁠ I was torn between capturing the poppies and the rainbow, trying to shoot both sides. I couldn’t really decide which perspective I wanted. But these moments of struggle are why I love photography. Sometimes the most beautiful shots come out of the most unexpected conditions.⁠

Photo by @broniveller for #Lr_Light || My friend and I had planned to wake up early and visit the Tegallalang Rice Terrace in the morning. We wanted to get there at first light to avoid tourists and soak in the landscape.⁠ •⁠ It proved to be a real challenge to wake up at 4 a.m. and ride a motorcycle for two hours. But, it all paid off when we arrived at the destination. Tegallalang’s rice fields are so beautiful in the morning. I love the fresh morning air combined with the green scenery and the beautiful sun rays. It was truly unforgettable.⁠

Photo by @navajomylo for #Lr_#Lr_#Lr_Light || In April of 2010, a few days before my birthday, I had a dream so vivid that I remember waking up in a panic at 2:18 a.m. In my dream, the sunrise was strong. The light was clear – no smog or dust in the air. Most of all, I recall how intensely quiet it was: so quiet I could only hear the sound of my own breath and heartbeat. •⁠ I viewed this dream as a vision or invitation to visit the place. The day before my birthday, I packed my gear, drove and camped out. That night, it rained and snowed. I felt like an idiot chasing a crazy dream. The next morning, the roads were so wet that all valley tours were canceled in the park.⁠ •⁠ But later that morning, it was just as I had dreamed. That exposure won me quite a few awards and also helped me financially. Now, I use the proceeds from my photography to bring light to homes across the American Southwest.⁠ •⁠ Announcing this month’s new theme: #Lr_Light. Make sure to share your bright photos with us and tag #Lr_Light for a chance to be featured on the Lightroom Instagram page!⁠

Photo by @navajomylo || Before we had BB guns, we ran around with cedar branches from our treehouses. We never played Cowboys and Indians because we knew John Wayne couldn’t kill 10 Indians with one shot. Our metal Transformer toys lasted through all the Rez dirt, and we all wanted to be Ultimate Warrior when we wrestled.⁠ •⁠ During those early years, my father took me everywhere. We never camped, but we took a ton of day trips all over Northern Arizona and into Southern Utah. He’s seen and supported my growth behind the camera, but one important thing he’s taught me is simply to put everything down and view the land.⁠ •⁠ This is my favorite kind of "time out." Nowadays, when we are both home, we often head out, and he still shows me these awesome places. He wants me to photograph them, but I’ll often leave the lenses, filters and tripods behind. I believe these trips are about spending time with him and, in a way, putting everything aside.⁠ •⁠ I can’t thank my mother and father enough for allowing me to spend so much time in nature. When I took this exposure, the only living thing I saw was an old coyote. I called him in from afar while playing my Native American flute. Out here, sounds can travel across the plains.⁠
