I’ve heard about the “golden hour” and how magical photos can turn out during it (the hour before sunset, or after sunrise). But I’ve never fully understood it until this week…
My husband and I were sitting outside just before dinner a couple of days ago, when he pointed out how beautiful the grass and crane flies looked in the glow of the sunlight.
The light was hitting the grass just right, with a bit of a golden hue.
I tried to capture it with my iPhone…
You can’t quite see the magic that I saw, but you can see that the sun is relatively low on the horizon and it’s beams are shooting straight across the grass.
Everything in the path of that light seemed to glisten and glow.
It was so beautiful! And it lasted for such a short period of time.
Since then I’ve been waiting for an opportunity to get out and capture that LOVELY glow.
Fortunately, I just happened to be out enjoying the weather and watching my boys play when it happened again.
Everything began to glimmer and I was thankful to have my phone handy to capture a few magical photos/memories…
Let’s just say that I’m definitely a new fan of the Golden Hour!
I guess the experts are right when they say lighting makes such a difference in photos. I can see it now!
Which has me wondering what other wonderful lighting I’ve been missing?
Want to join me on a hunt for light? We can report to each other next Wednesday what we find. :)
