Kevin Cooley's series "Light's Edge" features some great shots of light being captured. The majority of them are beams of light shooting into or out of the sky. Others show how lighting can affect the atmosphere. Either way, they are a great way of showing off light's magical properties in photographs.
From Bill Jemison, "This was a "hidden gem" taken at the same time as my ribbon winner from the "Celebration" challenge. It was only after quite a bit of effort that the underlying beauty of the image appeared. This was a misty morning during the 2005 Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta and I took the shot from a hill in Rio Rancho, NM where I live as the balloons drifted northward along the Rio Grande River in the bosque (river forest). "
This shot of the sunrise has a wonderful mix of pink and blue.
Steve Bell has a knack for capturing sunrises at the beach. Each of these photos does a wonderful job capturing the incredible light and color of the sunrise. If you enjoy these photos, you can buy prints of his work at RedBubble.
This photo captures some sharp reds and orange along the horizon and some more subtle shades as you get further away.
This photo has very vibrant red, orange, and yellow, contrasted by the silhouettes in the foreground.
