Our Daily Sykes #228 – Christmas Bush

We know neither where nor when Horace Sykes recorded this landscape, but we have chosen it for this Christmas Eve as our "Christmas Bush" or bushes. And the lighting at least intimates the miraculous. How, with the background of dark rocks mostly back-lighted, did Horace's band of bushes get lighted so? Now we simply turn on the fill-in flash in circumstances like this, if we wish. But Horace - as far as the evidence goes from hundreds of slides - did not use a flash outdoors.
