The Golden Hour

I took these photos last week as the setting sun was so big and beautiful, I sat outside and watched it until it disappeared out of sight. Imagine my joy when I found out what this week’s photo challenge was so I could share them with you.


This week’s Photo Challenge from the Daily Post is the Golden Hour.

    Isn’t it great when you’ve just taken the perfect picture/s for the weekly challenge? The sun looks as if it’s setting into a vast lake. Beautiful.

      Thank you Janet, and yes you’re right it did make me smile when I realized I had the perfect photo for this week’s challenge. You’re photo was beautiful even though you couldn’t appreciate it at the time. I wish your friend all the best.

      Thanks a lot. I took the photo before all this happened so I was able to appreciate it for what is was on its own. But it seemed an apt metaphor for what she was going through as well.

      Thanks Kongo and I have to agree with you. I see the sunset from my balcony all the time, but this time it was different.

      You are very generous to like my snapshot. I would not dare to compare it with your art. I added the Blake-poem for distraction 😉 hoping some of the beauty of the words would rub off on my photo, which is nothing but, let’s face it, a rather mediocre snapshot. I usually add my photos before I watch the other entries – or I would never join in.

      I thought your photo was exceptional, right down to the rust spots on the roof. I felt the words of the poem complimented it and take anything away from your photo at all. I am thrilled you are joining in with the challenges and I hope you continue to do so as I am following you :). Have a wonderful day.

    Nice shots! lucky you; not for the sky nor the sun, but for the large-thin-dark clouds on its way. Just the decisive momment!

      I agree totally Jaime, and funnily enough I have just posted a comment on your blog!

      You’re welcome Eclipse and thank you . I especially liked your first shot where you can just glimpse the sun going down through the trees.
