Weekly Photo Challenge: Let there be light!

During my travels all across Asia and back home I encountered all different sorts of lights, natural and artificial lights. Down below I present a collection of what I saw so far. Let there be light!

Während meiner Reisen kreuz und quer durch Asien und wieder zuhause begegne ich unterschiedlichen Arten von Lichtern, natürlichen und künstlichen Lichtern. Oben habe ich eine Sammlung, dessen was ich bisher gesehen habe, zusammengestellt. Let there be light!

    • Vielen Dank für Deinen netten Kommentar, Poldi, und für’s Vorbeischauen. Ich liebe Nachtaufnahmen von anderen Leuten und fotografiere inzwischen selber sehr gerne nachts, da die Stimmung zu dieser Zeit eine ganz besondere und vor allem ganz anders als tagsüber ist.

  8. Nice shots, Vanessa! I really like the Benares candles.

    • Thank you so much for the nice comment. Yes, Varanasi was something special. We set the candles onto river Ganges afterwards where we have done an early morning and a night boad ride: Both were amazing experiences. I saw, that you have been to India as well. I will definitely stop by your blog again.

    • Thank you very much for your comment. I guess, you are malaysian or indonesian? It is a shame, that your blog is not in english, otherwise I would take a closer look.

      • i am indonesian. i’m sorry, my engslish is not good enough. so i write in indonesian

        December 6, 2013
    • Indonesia must be amazing, one of the countries I haven’t been to yet, but where I definitely want to go. I think, it doesn’t matter in which language you write your blog posts, I just wished I understood your language to be able to read it. My boyfriend only blogs in german because he says that his english is not good enough. My mom who is considering to start a blog as well would only blog in german as well for the same reasons. When travelling in Asia I often wish I spoke and understood more than just ten words in the language of the country to be able to communicate with the locals in their language.
