Weekly Photo Challenge: Golden Hour


Great topic with many wonderful opportunities.  Here’s a couple from the Bosque Del Apache in New Mexico last December.  All of these are Sandhill Cranes during their winter stay in the south.  All three of these are at different stages of the Golden Hour.  The first is just when the sun is slightly above the horizon, lighting the crane but not the surrounding hills.

Landing lights on….

The next was taken about 20 minutes later – Sandhills on the pond as the magnificent New Mexico sun slips behind the mountains and paints the sky….

The cranes seem to enjoy the New Mexico sunset also!

The last photo was taken almost immediately after the previous one.  One of the final Sandhills coming in during the last light of the golden hour.
