The Golden Hour

The Golden Hour 23.1.13This was taken in that special hour just before sunset when the light is so magical. Fortunately, at the right moment the clouds parted and for a brief moment, and I do mean brief, the sun gave a wonderful dim glow to the world and then it was gone. I literally only had time to grab my compact, which is almost always in my pocket, and snap. Compacts struggle with these light conditions but I was pleased with the shot as it captured a very fleeting moment. As the saying goes, the best camera is the one you have with you.

    Beautiful. It has a pleasant, surreal quality, too.
