Light and nature have captivated Monique and me this week. I took my photo of a Swamp pea (Eucholypsis linearis) while walking around Forrestdale Lake. The sun behind it makes it glow as if lit from within.

Monique snapped her picture of glowing borage flower heads after an early morning shower.
‘The air was still,’ she wrote, ‘and the sunlight on the wet plants gave off a luminescence I knew I had to capture fast.’

And capture it she did!

Midweek Moment is a weekly photographic endeavour in which Monique Mulligan and I team up to share our favourite photos on our websites. It’s a way of stretching ourselves creatively and a nice distraction from writing. Click here for more of our Moments.
