This week’s Weekly Photo challenge:
“The Golden Hour. In photography, the “golden hour” is the first and last hour of sunlight of the day. Photographers venture out on sunrise hikes or sunset treks to capture a magical shot, due to the quality of the light during that time of day…For this challenge, we want you to go out and snap a photograph, wherever you may be, during this Golden Hour — and pay attention to the natural light around you…
IN A NEW POST CREATED SPECIFICALLY FOR THIS CHALLENGE, SHARE A PICTURE TAKEN DURING THE GOLDEN HOUR.” -Cheri Lucas Rowlands at The Daily Post
I know the instructions say to go and take a picture, but I read the challenge at 9PM Saturday night and thought of one of my favorite outings with my family. The picture above was taken during a fishing trip with my son and husband a couple of years ago. It was early in the morning during sunrise and the sunlight made this beautiful streak of light on the water. Many of the surrounding sites were barely visible as outlines and silhouettes. As we were fishing, we could see all sorts of fishing vessels in the distance. Cargo ships, cruise ships, ferries, motor boats, sail boats, and fishing boats passed by this area. My favorite was this fishing boat with birds hovering around it. It wasn’t a particularly beautiful boat; but, some how, the way it looked beside the streak of light and the birds around it made it look pleasant and sweet.
