The word “sparkles” rarely conjures up the majesty of the word “grand” but sometimes the image can.

Remember when you were kids, you used to look up in the clouds and imagine you were seeing ships, airplanes, bears, unicorns, and so forth? Think of “sparkles” as kind of like that.

Have you seen any of the images that come back from the Hubble space telescope? Let’s put “Sparkles” into that category. Instead of imagining different cloud formations, imagine galaxies and nebulae. Can it get any grander than that?

  1. Grand photo! I always say … add a little sparkle wherever you go!

  2. Not each case of catching movement brings artistic results, this did.
    Itt should be a special category in the art of photography: creating forms that don’t exist, but also are not “hand-made” by the artist, only by the camera (when the operator cannot plan the results).,

    • Thank you. Well said. It was a stroke of luck, that’s for sure. There isn’t anything in the world I could have done to plan that, except be there on the ready. And I guess that’s planning enough. 🙂 I appreciate your comment.

  3. Grand!

  4. Very cool, Cris!


  5. It is really grand, I loved your timing Cris.O\Perfect timing and amazing capture

    • Thank you. I appreciate that.

      I have a Canon point-and-shoot and it didn’t come with an external shutter release, so I had to keep my finger on the shutter button for several seconds with each exposure. That’s where tripods come in handy. 🙂

  6. Very Big Bang-ish. Grand, Cris. 😉

  7. I’m right there with CaroLine. Maybe it’s the season, but the first thing I thought of was a Christmas wreath.

  8. Beautiful. I call it The Light of Christ captured in a Christmas Wreath. Thank you, Cris’l for your inspiring art.

    • As usual, you have such a way with you about seeing things that others cannot, or at least do not, see. I could have looked at this for a hundred years and never would have seen that. Thanks.
