They call it the “Golden Hour” of photography – You’ve probably heard of it. It’s the time right before/during sunset and sunrise. I’ve taken some examples of that over the years, oftentimes on accident and sometimes with the sole purpose of trying to capture that incredible light.
Good, bad or ugly all these pictures remind me, as I live out my days here on Earth, just how gorgeous this place we all call “home” really is.
