Weekly Photo Challenge – The Golden Hour

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

Fishing near Seawolf Park near Galveston, Texas, in 2009.

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.  For a larger image, you can click on the photo.

About Claudia

Hi!! My name is Claudia. Blogging is sort of a creative/therapeutic activity for me. I blog about being a wife, mother, student, caseworker, and simply being human through photography, words, music, and blog challenges. Mental illness has also been part of my life, so you'll sometimes find mental health and psychology in my posts. I've dealt with anxiety and depression most of my life. And my husband has bipolar disorder. My hope is that I may show readers that it is possible for people to live positive, productive lives despite mental illness, challenges, or frustrations.
