The Golden Hour (take 2 & 3 & 4 . . . )
Forgive me fellow bloggers. My first Golden hour post, “barrelling down the highway”, was done in a hurry (usually I ruminate for a few days). I’m certain many of you noticed the error – the photo challenge clearly explains that “in photography, the golden hour is the first and last hour of sunlight of the day.”
Although the sunset photo I choose was “Golden”, the silhouetted mountains show the sun had clearly “disappeared in plain sight” (to make a pun for my regular readers). So here’s a series of “truer” golden hour photos. Albeit, truth isn’t always black and white, is it?
For an added bonus I’ve re-blogged and linked to my wife’s pointed and hilarious post, It’s Impossible to Bring a Photographer to Sanity. It was written October 31, 2102 while on vacation in California, after a 4.30 AM morning to catch – you guessed it – that golden hour.
So – without further adieu – the golden hour ( take 2 & 3 & 4 . . . )

Speaking of this special colour, lets not forget “The Golden Rule”, common to at least 12 religious traditions.
The Christian version from the gospel of Luke is this:
“In everything do to others as you would have them do onto you . . .”
