new year, illumination

The illumination makes this scene striking. Light radiates from both above and below the figures-- see the triangle-shaped highlight directly below the animals?

This photo works also because of the triangle made by the three heads. One side of the triangle is formed by the extended arm, which visually links the three figures. The long shadows, interconnected, serve as a strong counterpoint to the bright light that casts them, and the shadows seem to anchor the scene.
