Bouncing Light on Water

I have just started playing with reflecting light on water. Here are a few island scenes. I take several shots of each scene and love the variation the waves give. The last ones are just water. (The islands have a story to tell. A print can be purchased in my shop – Here.)

I am quite obsessed with light… so when I hear a radio show about it I get excited. Have you heard of Lene Vestergaard Hau? A new hero of mine… She spends her afternoons slowing light down to bicycle speed! Yup… mind blowing. She is full of wonder and surprises herself – as you can hear in her interview on Radio Lab. They have 2 stories on her work. This first one is really something. I put my work down and just sat and listened, then listened again… and again. She explains how she not only plays with the speed of light – but can do the reverse of teleportation. Hope you enjoy it too.



Lene Vestergaard Hau – Professor at Harvard. She does the reverse of teleportation – light to matter and back to light! These are her lasers.


I am now working on the covers for the Anne of Green Gables and Emily of New Moon box sets, written by L. M. Montgomery – to be published by Random House Penguin next year! A dream job. I will be sure to give updates.

I finally finished up Fall Leaves! It will be out in the Fall of 2014 by Houghton Mifflin Books for Children. So excited about this one – perhaps someday I will meet the talented author, Loretta Holland.


This week I have been playing with shadows for my new original picture book with Running Press – Shadow Chasers! It is really coming together.

Hope you are having a beautiful autumn – check out that Radio Lab story! Too good to miss -Elly
