Golden Light



Got to the beach a little later yesterday afternoon.


Parked the car and noticed the dark sky in the northeast.


The sun was lowering in the southwest behind me and hitting everything in front of me.


Including this telephone pole.

    1. Thanks Terry. But I think the camera had a little to do with it...not to mention the sun, the clouds, the grass and the stones!!

  12. It's amazing what light can do! I'm always trying to shoot earlier or later in the day because the lighting can make or break a picture. You should see the Four Corner region in strong, slanting light. It makes the rocks vibrant.
    You have the eye of an artist, and it shows in every snap..

    1. Oh cut it out Louise!! Thanks though. Mid day photos need a lot of extra help but the early and late ones can go pretty much on their own. You are right.
