Hey Patty, I just read your comment about no public restrooms. That's unreal, believe it or not, that would be against the law in Florida! Any public business has to have them.

It's getting late in the month, and I haven't taken any shots I'm really pleased with, but I thought this shot was at least okay. Yesterday I was out doing some work at a small cottage in Maine, when I noticed the late afternoon sun on the far shoreline of the pond. The composition would have been better if the kayaker had been closer, but that was entirely beyond my control.

Rain, rain, rain... that's all I get here for days now . I guess there won't be another chance to go out and take some more "golden hour" images.

So I'll change my entry again. Reason: my "Eyes half shut" series and all the work behind is the result of that challenge. It kinda represents my tries to "catch" the feeling of the golden hour. Sure - it's just one way to see it, but still it comes much closer than the panorama I posted before. I'll choose the last of the 4 pics as my challenge entry (although #3 is also high on my list to be honest... but it's one pic only):



You may have a look at the whole series here, if you are interested: http://forums.steves-digicams.com/pe...lden-hour.html

Sorry for the indecision, I hope I didn't confuse you too much in the end.

@NMRecording
I like the feeling in your entry.

@Kashka
How warm/cold was it when you took the image?

Kind regards,
Th.

Just a quick reminder - September is almost over!

PS - I will be VERY BUSY for the rest of this week preparing for a park special event on Saturday, but will try my best to stop by and begin the voting process...

Default Sunrise over Saddleback Mountain

After a solid month of morning Marine Layer clouds and fog, we had two days of brutal cloudless sunny skies and "mild" Santa Ana conditions (yesterday in LA an all time high temperature of 113ºF was recorded before the Weather Bureau's thermometer gave up the ghost and stopped working). This morning we finally had some broken high clouds move in and I saw a sunrise worth photographing (of course by the time I ran to get my camera the brilliant reds had all faded, but at least I got something to enter). It was truly a golden hour!

The higher of Saddleback Mountain's two peaks is Modjeska PeaK, in the Santa Ana Mountains, named after Madame Helena Modjeska, a once famous Shakespearean actress. Her former home in Modjeska Canyon is now a bird sanctuary, famous for its very active hummingbird and other bird feeders that are visible from an enclosed viewing porch and attract a wide variety of easily observed birds.

Another attempt. This topic was driving me to distraction, or possibly abstraction. Tonights sunset glow, reflected from the closed down building next door, turned a blue building to gold.

I've changed my mind about which to submit. Here's my new entry, shot Saturday late afternoon/early evening while walking the beach in Oceanside.

"Daddy, I love you THIS much!"

Thanks for the reminder, Mole.

My vote is for pboerger photo (the creek/river with beautiful gold...). I think it is a photo that reflects this month's challenge very well.
