Let me know what you think about this photograph of the Golden Hour, which was taken a half hour before sunset.

Pens:

I’ve just completed a week of summer adventures, which included visitors from coast to coast. I’m still on meteor time, because we deliberately and serendipitously added new layers to our memories. This week’s photo challenge from WordPress fits snuggly into the theme of the last ten days: golden hours of family and friends moving through new experiences as well as replaying old ones.

In the Lens section is my entry. It was taken on a misty evening, which gave the impending landscape a shimmering character. The grey green added to the sun’s glow. The image was stilled with a half hour yet to show the magnificence that was realized.

No matter how many sunsets are witnessed, I crave their variations. Each one sheds its specific mark on the universe, which seems to continuously engage human nature.

Note: As always I welcome any comment about this post or any part of my blog.

    Lovely! And I look forward to your sunrise photo 🙂 The hard part about the sunrise is that you never know how many times you will have to wake up early to catch the one sunrise that is spectacular. Glad you have had lots of golden hours with family and friends recently.

    ~ I couldn’t agree more, no two sunsets are alike. each and single one is unique and inspiring.
