Fading Gold

When the Golden Hour (see yesterday’s post) begins to fade, there is a shorter period where other pastel shades have their moment. Here are some shots from the same captivating farmscape during the time of the fading gold.

Sunrise Gold

Photographers refer to the magical, mystical time right after sunrise and right before sunset as The Golden Hour. Depending on many variables the rich, low, sun-enhanced colors may last just a few minutes or may extend well beyond an hour. Pat and I were hunting for a gravel road (so we could go slower as we looked for photo ops) when I saw awesome golden hour color, beautiful landscape, and rising mist. I quickly stopped (after checking my rearview mirror), backed up, pulled in, and took these pictures from vantage points all within 100 yards of each other. I hope you enjoy this Golden Hour.

Meet Andy

Andy is a tall, handsome red-head that loves to run . . . on all four legs. A regal bearing and friendly spirit as well as a “top dog” manner make this horse the prima donna (if he were a she) of the Blueberry Hill farm. As you will see, there is a very evident joy and abandon when Andy runs. Hope you enjoy meeting Andy.

A Visit to a Farm

hayenginewheel2milkhouseA couple of weeks ago a photo excursion started in the morning light with pictures of hay bales, stops to capture old farm equipment, photos of antiques (see my post on these), and then on to a fascinating farm visit.

The farm visit started as Pat and I stopped to take pictures of an old stone milk house. In Paul Harvey’s words, I will tell you “the rest of the story” on Wednesday.   🙂
