Weekly Photo Challenge: The Golden Hour

Boats at the harbor at dusk

The “golden hour” – a relatively short time when the day meets the night or when the night meets the day. A truly magical moment filled with a soft sunlight and its gentle power of evoking tranquility and stillness. That special energy negates the turbulence of the day or restlessness of the night.

Sky and the ocean after sunset

Those are some golden moments I captured last year on Cape Cod, Massachusetts.

This post will be published late in a “wee hour” of the night rather than a golden one. I think it is better late than not at all.

  3. My daughter Alicia and I have been vacationing in Newport, Rhode Island. Twilight, when the water becomes opalescent and the sky is Hudson River School/Maxwell Parrish luminous, we can only sigh with the beauty of it all.


  4. Beautiful photos suiting the theme so well!
