He was going to the his favorite point when, suddenly, he was blinded by the/a/- bright light which he had never seen before.
A friend of mine inclines me to write "by the bright light". However, I'd go for "by bright light", because "light" is an uncountable noun in the sentence above.
What would you say?
Please, correct all my mistakes. I should know English perfectly and if you show me my mistakes I will achieve my dream a little bit faster. A lot of thanks.

The fact that it's followed by "which he had never seen before" makes using "bright light" (uncountably) unnatural. It is very unlikely that he had never seen any type of bright light in his entire life.
I would say "He was blinded by a bright light, which he had never seen there before". Presumably, it was simply the appearance of a bright light specifically as he approached his "favorite point" which was notable.
