Sun-Bronzed

BKG_0101

It was almost 5 pm. The downtown office workers hurried to parking decks and cars and the home-bound commute.

Bundled against the early evening chill, I wandered the sidewalks, camera in hand.

The sun was making its rapid descent, ready to kiss the horizon, one final blaze and flash.

With brush in hand, the sun painted the city in broad strokes of golden bronze.  For that briefest moment, sunlight illuminated the world with its fiery brilliance.

The “golden hour”. Yes, now I understand.

  1. Yes you do sistah!! It is maginificently cold here this morning and this image helps me to feel warm. Love the repetition divided diagonally between shadow and light. Yum.
    Maybe that’s part of the reason I like golden hour light so much-just looking at it feels warm. Hmmmm. Now you’re like a therapist.
    Happy day Brenda.
