Golden Hour on the Tidal Flats

The concept has been around as long as there has been color photography. Perhaps even longer! The “Golden Hour,” there are actually two of them each day. The golden hour is generally defined as one hour after sunrise and one hour before sunset. It is a time when the sun is low in the sky and the transition from highlight to shadow on photographic subjects is gradual. And, not too surprisingly, the light has a warm, golden cast to it. It’s a wonderful time to be out on the flats making photographs of the wild horses. Below are a couple favorites from a recent evening visit.
