Saturday Snapshot: The Golden Hour

Saturday Snapshot is hosted by West Metro Mommy Reads. 

I am rarely able to take a walk in the afternoon, but I got out after 4pm one day this week, to enjoy the last of the sunshine and relatively warm temperatures before a cold front hit. This is why photographers call that time of day The Golden Hour:

Golden light & shadows

Late afternoon light through the branches

Our neighborhood glowing

Last bit of light in the trees

Hope you are enjoying a wonderful weekend!


  1. I love the sun as it's beginning to set and it makes everything glow!

  2. Very nice shots! It's fun to capture scenes as the sun falling.

  3. I'd never heard of this term before- but it's certainly an interesting concept that allows for some beautiful pictures.

  4. the Golden hour always produces the best photos-the glow is lovely.
