Weekly Photo Challenge: The Golden Hour
“Ode to the Enchanted Light”
“Under the trees light
has dropped from the top of the sky,
like a green
latticework of branches,
on every leaf,
drifting down like clean
“A cicada sends
its sawing song
high into the empty air.
The world is
a glass overflowing
- Pablo Neruda, “Ode to the Enchanted Light”
Shot an hour before twilight by Myra Lambino: the Ramble and Lake at Central Park Manhattan New York City, with golden sunlight rendering the iconic San Remo twin-tower, of pre-war classical architecture, iridescent.
From WordPress: “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. Last week, I spent several days exploring Quebec City, and the view of the Old Town, from the city’s historic ramparts, is stunning. I took the photo above on our first day of wandering, as the sun began to set.”
