Today I’m participating in the WordPress weekly photo challenge and this week’s theme is “the golden hour”, that first or last hour of the day that gives such a special light to everything around. If you like what you see, feel free to subscribe and receive nature photography updates a few times a week.
I love the glowing effect the rising sun rays give to these puffy clouds.
On a winter morning, I love how the sun rays do their best to shine through the fog and make the fall foliage turn gold.
The morning sunlight right after a night of rain has an interesting effect too. I love to capture that special light on raindrops.
We don’t get a lot of frost in San Diego and when we do, it starts to disappear as soon as the sun comes out and exposes its warm rays. So it’s a race against time to capture the frost in the sunlight before it melts.
The late afternoon sun in the winter can give a nice golden look to yellow leaves, and the scene looks even nicer if you can capture the moon in the background.
Finally I like how bright the sky can still be while everything on the ground is getting darker as the sun sets.
