Weekly Photo Challenge: The Golden Hour – The Suns Slowly Fades In All Of His Glory

23 Comments

Sunset over New Polebarkia

I was happy to see this week’s photo challenge, “The Golden Hour”, since I have been doing a lot of sunrise and sunset photos lately. Living on an island makes that a no-brainer. And with unlimited windlight settings, it is easy to create the golden hour, regardless of the time of day. Cheating, maybe, but that is one of the perks of inhabiting a virtual world. So sue me ;)

I took this shot looking west from outside our home. While I love the coolness of the sunrise, it is the glorious warmth of a sunset that speaks to me most. The glow of the sun reflected on the clouds and the water is a reminder to me of the accomplishments of the day. But it is also an admonition that when tomorrow comes, it will be time to forget the achievements of yesterday and make our mark – no matter how lofty or simple – in the dawning of a new day. As the sun rises again to travel his path toward the fading of his glory once more, make the most of whatever your goals may be.

I'm a Yank who clicked her heels and landed in Oz. Someday I'll find those ruby slippers and get back...hopefully, not in the middle of a corn field in Kansas! I'm also a resident of Second Life where I work, play and take lots of photos. This is where you'll be subjected to them :D
