What a difference a few minutes make

After leaving the Rodez train station last Saturday morning, I went up to the market in the town center. I seldom go there, so I had plans to take plenty of photos to share with you -- but it was too darn cold! I sipped a hot chocolate in a smoke-free café instead.

My frozen fingers did at least function well enough to be able to catch a striking change of light on the bell tower of Notre Dame de Rodez.

The photo above was taken at 7:57 am.

The photo below was taken six minutes earlier:

I love light. It's amazing what it can do, how it can change in a short amount of time.

The quality of light is amazing! You're lucky to have been there at that time.

Gorgeous light. I'm glad you were able to catch it. It's beautiful.

This type of lighting is why I loved to be out as the sun was coming up in Toulouse (on "our" bridge) :)
Beautiful photo!!

It's true what they say - good photography is all about the light!

Light is amazing-everything is amazing when light is concerned~I feel that way about watching sunsets, it all occurs so quickly!
