The theme of week thirteen of the 52-week photography project is “the golden hour.” The golden hour is the hour before sunset or after sunrise, when the sun casts amazing golden tones in the sky. The challenge for the week was to capture the image and find ways to turn the golden hour into a story.
During the golden hour, daylight appears to be redder and softer. Filmmakers like this time of day because of the softness of the sky. Golden light is not only soft, it is also warm.
I took pictures during the “golden hour” for two days in a row (Sunday and Monday).
On Sunday, I just went out of the house to take pictures. I got the glow of the rising sun between the trees.
On Monday, I walked to the river and got a glimpse of the soft golden light shining on the water and just above the water. Here are the images of the sky and the water during the golden hour.
