The Golden Hour


I have been re-painting some old garden signs and recently found my messy desk in the light of the 
"golden hour" so I couldn't resist taking a few photos.


There's just something about this time of day that makes me drop what I am doing and grab my camera.   It's my favorite time to try and capture that beautiful, golden light.
Here are a few other photos I took in one of those "hurry and grab the camera moments." 


This is Fetzer's way of enjoying the "golden hour" 


...and Shatzie's


I know some of you have seen these before, but they are some of my favorite "golden hour" photos from around my house.






Thanks for dropping by to take a peek. 
I'm looking forward to a long, holiday weekend with plans to do some crafting projects. 
How about you? 

Becca

That's one of the reasons I like living in Alaska. Our golden hours last so long- Three hour sunsets turning into three hour sunrises in the summer and almost all day (4hours of sunrise-sunset) in the winter. The sun seems to always be at an angle.
Thanks for sharing your wonderful golden moments.

Stunning pictures of the 'golden hour'. I hope for rain this long weekend, the garden plants all wilting from lack of water. I hope you have a wonderful weekend.

Becca -

I love this time of day when the sun shines like this. You captured it so beautifully Becca!
What is with Kitties and a hamper of clean linens? I mean my boy never goes in the hamper of dirty clothes just when the clean ones are in it!
Don't you just love cats and where they choose to sleep? There's a war going on in our home right now...it's between the husband and the boy cat. He likes to drive my hubby crazy by sleeping on every chair in the living room not the one designated to him! So after hubby vaccums he flips the cushions up...well this makes the cat love it even more because now it's like a cave for him with the seat up!

Happy long weekend! Sad to see Summer go!

Fantastic photos Becca! You are right ~ that light is excellent for photos. And how cute are kitties catching the last rays of sunshine. Wonderful!

I did some crafting on Wednesday and will be doing more today.

Definitely the golden hour, and a lovely hour at that. Wish I could find the time to craft.

Beautiful photos Becca! I know all about the Golden Hour. I always noticed it in Whitehorse, later, on a summer evening the light would slant right through the poplar tree leaves - I called it "The Green-Gold Hour" and it was my favourite time of day. Thanks for reminding me!

I LOVE that golden hour, too (we're approaching it now as we speak). It doesn't last long enough! Your photos of it are great.
