Flowers at the Golden Hour


The sun is going down earlier every day now as we move into the fall season.  I love the light at this time of year when the sun is lower in the sky.

Digging into my very small reserve of images I found these two which were taken in our small garden.  I love how the light falls over the flowers at the Golden Hour.

  5. The beautiful light of fall – nice pull from your archive.

  6. Lovely! Great use of DOF and light….

  7. Lovely colors, Laura. Even with the large number of followers I have, it isn’t always that I get 100 likes after only 8 hours.

  8. So what’s your secret to making the breeze stop during golden hour? LOL.

    Really nice light, of course!

  9. When I first saw the flowers, I thought of them saying, “Wait just a little longer, don’t go”. I decided I would linger over them, they asked so nicely.

  10. Beautiful purple flowers, Laura. Love your work on them., and great that you can see the mild purple tones on the petals. The images look like water-paintings coming to life 🙂

  11. Really great! I love pictures of flowers!

  12. Beautiful, Laura! I particularly like the first image with the receding background flower.

  13. I love that late afternoon light. Gorgeous.

  14. Serious photography really is all about light, and the ability to take best advantage of what’s available is a gift. There are, of course, for each of us, ideal conditions, and this is one of mine as well. Nicely done, Laura.

  15. I took a photo of my yellow daisies the other afternoon with the afternoon sun falling on them. It’s magical you know. 🙂
    Such pretty flowers and lovely photos. (Yours I mean – not mine. Although mine are pretty good too lol)

  16. You *know* I’m in!!! 😉 Pretty, pretty. 🙂

  17. Laura, I love this kind of lighting too. Very beautiful pictures.
