This Morning’s Spectacular Sunrise

I interviewed Heather MacDonald in 2003: Luke: “You said the light here is special. Could you elaborate?”

Heather: “It’s brilliant and white. It’s even more so in Orange County. My mother lives in Irvine. I wonder if it is because the light reflects off of the ocean and bounces off the open hills. You feel like you are in a big bowl of light. It’s the most wondrous feeling. Here it is a little thicker but still in the evenings, it reflects off the white stucco houses in a way that makes you feel like you are in the sky. In the East Coast, the humidity is constantly so much heavier, that the light never produces that clarity and sharpness of outline.”
