The Golden Hour

Taking photographs at sunset is both a pleasure and a pain. As the sun sinks in the sky, the air starts to cool and the temperatures grow bearable. A world of green and grey is set aflame by the sun's dying rays. Yet, this twilight hour brings out more than just the optimistic photographers. I find myself swatting at mosquitoes and being startled by raccoons, opossums, and even an equally frightened rabbit on multiple occasions. The light, so bright and constant in the middle of the day, is soft and swiftly shifting as the day draws to a close. I fiddle with ISO settings and watch as every bit of movement turns to a blur in the camera's eye. Oh how limited is the vision of a camera! And yet, what lovely moments in time it captures for eternity.
