Daylight Orbs


In this post I’m going to be showing several shots of this scene, just because the light orbs are so beautiful.

I posted a similar picture taken with my iPhone 4s camera in last week’s silhouette photo challenge.

These and most of the photographs in my blog posts are taken with a Canon G12.

Whether or not these are orbs of the same kind as we have seen in the night flash photos, or simply sun reflections, or a combination of both, they certainly brighten up a photograph.

Dr. Miceal Ledwith, co-author of the Orb Project, thinks that the hexagonal shaped orbs are a result of their light reflecting back at the camera lens just as the shutter is closing, thus the hexagonal aperture shape.

Looks like the orbs are approvingly interested in the renovation work.

I’ve inserted a larger image so that you can see the fainter orb on the upper left and the smaller orb on the right.

Daylight orbs? Scientists Dr. Ledwith and Klaus Heinemann, Ph.D. think it possible.

For those of you who are new to this blog or would like to revisit the explanation as to what orbs are, this might be of help:


About orbphotog

Born in the West, I studied photography and painting at the School of Visual Arts in New York City before being drawn back home to the open skies of western living. My camera is always close at hand to capture changing light and to record what catches my eye. However, it is my recent discovery of being able to see orbs through the medium of digital photography that has sparked my passion for photographing the night. All photographs in this blog are copyrighted by me. Occasional photos by guests are copyrighted by the photographer. Please contact if you would like to order prints.
