A thimble of light

This is not my best photo. It was taken last week, on a bicycle tour, in a dark stretch of wood, on an extremely steep road. So steep in fact, that I had to stop and push rather than pedal. When I had to stop completely to catch my breath it was very quiet and very dark and then I saw this foxglove a little ahead of me. My exhaustion is partly to blame for the anything but perfect shot but at the time, this single flower was light to me. And the title? Foxglove is called Fingerhut (thimble) in German.

Light makes photography. Embrace light. Admire it. Love it. But above all, know light. Know it for all you are worth”
