The Last Hour Before Sunset

I love it, the last hour before sunset. I love how the setting sun embraces the world in a golden glow. I love the quality of the light and its ability to create the extraordinary out of the ordinary. It is a magical hour, the last hour of sunlight, a serendipitous moment in time.

It’s my favourite hour, the hour before sunset, the hour that brings with it the promise of rest. I turn my face to bask in its beauty, lulled by its warmth, suffused in its light.

  4. that gap between day and night is truly a sacred hour - you captured it well with your words. (not surprising either that it's the time of day often favored by photographers!)

  5. Sunsets have always made me feel a little lonely, for some reason.

    I like the sunrise but I also like the dusk.

    Your architecture photographs are just stunning, Loree.
