Weekly Photo Challenge : The Golden Hour


‘In photography, the “golden hour” is the first and last hour of sunlight of the day. Photographers venture out on sunrise hikes or sunset treks to capture a magical shot, due to the quality of the light during that time of day.  Share a picture taken during the golden hour’

I am not much of a sunrise person, but I do have a few sunset pictures in my many files of photos, here are a few taken in Norway last December.    We had the first snowfall on the day we arrived, so there was much excitement and photos, and playing in the snow.   The low sun was particularly bright against the whiteness of the snow.

And before very long,it had disappeared completely, leaving a golden glow on the bare trees.

I know, I know, it’s summertime now, and we don’t really want to be reminded of cold snowy winters yet, so here are a few sunsets from the other end of the world, Zimbabwe, in March
