Weekly Photo Challenge: The Golden Hour, Take Three

By Vladimir Brezina

This week’s Photo Challenge is The Golden Hour.

Most obviously, the golden hour brings with it the golden light of the rising or setting sun itself, as in my first two posts, here and here. But the real glory of the golden hour is the soft glow with which it lights up every object it still reaches, briefly between the lengthening shadows…

  6. I like all these pictures Vladimir. Each one of them is a great shot. Nevertheless, (to me) having to see them all together is kind of boring or tiresome. I’d rather enjoy just the one that (mostly) you consider that better fit for the topic. (My choise woul be the 9th; it’s awesome!)
