Night Game

Moisture in the nighttime atmosphere carries light and can create shadows out of thin air. Chip Forelli took advantage of a foggy night to position his camera in the sweet spot of the shadows created by this overhead lamp next to a rural basketball court. The shadowy rays emanating from the periphery of the lamp are caused by four tiny metal tabs that connect the panes of glass. The small amount of light they block is usually invisible to the eye, but here their effect is magically spread through the air by the fog.
