Weekly Photo Challenge: The Golden Hour

The Daily WordPress Photo Challenge for the week is The Golden Hour. Photographers swear that the best hour to take a photograph is this very brief window between the first hour of sunlight and sunset. It is easy to miss it.

For this week, here are my golden hour photos:

    Ese, you should hear the sounds of the wild. They intensified as the sun sets like heralding a new day for all the animals to come out of hiding.

    You are so lucky! You have a beautiful home, you can have a beautiful garden. Am sure the gardeners from church would be glad to spare some of their extra plants in the Fall. I could assist you with your gardening and I can assure you it is a very rewarding endeavor.

    HK is a chef’s paradise, that’s why you love it. And I love it too for its open market to gourmet restaurants, there is something for every budget.

    So true in what you’re saying … I love the markets too – often visit the “poor man’s nightclub” market .. didn’t have a clue what I was eating, but it all tasted fantastic.

    I read once that in Chinese cuisine, anything that moves can be eaten so be careful. LOL But if I believe everything that I read, HK holds many secrets, historical or otherwise, underworld.

    You have the “perfect orange round ball” that you have been looking for right there in HK!

    Sure, you are welcome anytime, to help me re-create , renew, and add to this garden..

    I have opened the “window blinds” behind my “MAC” and I am imagining a staircase of
    potted flowers there..

    The wild ducks ( geese) flew across the lake this morning and settled on the neighbor’s lawn.
    It was quite a beautiful sight to see them up in the air above the lake.
    Good for them, they can stay there.
