Two reasons for posting this image today...to take a break from the Summer heat and to illustrate "The Golden Hour" in photography.
As I was looking through images to post today, I came across this image taken during our last trip to the Smoky mountains in October. I can remember the musty smells of falling leaves, the sound of the stream gurgling...almost dry this time of year and the early bite of Autumn crispness in the air.
The picture was taken during the "Golden Hour" referenced above. The link will take you a more in depth description of the Golden Hour in photography. The yellow of the early turning leaves in the Mountains are highlighted at this time of day with the sun behind them almost making them translucent in the glow of late afternoon - October. I have mentioned this before but this is without a doubt my favorite time for photographs. The hectic day has passed, the sounds of the forest have subsided to almost a whisper and the setting sun showing nature once more at it's most beautiful just before nightfall.
