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.

I rarely do landscape photography – preferring tighter, more detailed or close-up images – but this image is one I took and like. I think this image has a peaceful and mystical (or “mistical”) quality that is often hard to capture. This shot was taken on a morning photo outing with my friend Pat. This mist was just beginning to lift when we stopped by a bridge overlooking this river. There was a wooden railroad trestle on one side of the bridge and this view from the other.

Morning Fog

Fog brings an intimate, mystical beauty to morning. Lately we have had a lot of morning fog. These images are from two different mornings in two different places, but a sense of mystery surrounds the images of both days. Hope you can sense the feeling of these mornings from these pictures.
