I’ve read about the golden hour in photography. The golden hour is the first and last hour of sunlight each day. When we were with our friends Patti and Neal at the end of October, we spent much of one day enjoying the autumn colors and hiking in Kentucky. Late in the day we drove through Betsy’s home town in Big Stone Gap, Virginia before heading back to the lodge in Kentucky.
The day had been dreary and overcast, but as the sun was going down, we saw a bright orange-pink sky in the west below the clouds. Since Patti and Neal are as much into photography as Betsy and me, we of course had to stop for pictures.
Looking back to the east, the glow on the hills and the buildings were a perfect example of what the golden hour means.
But as beautiful as that was, our eyes kept going back to the bright light between the mountains and the clouds to the west. What a gorgeous ending to a wonderful day.
