Default More images taken during the 'golden hour'

G'day all

I am often taken by the wonderful colours of that time of day called 'the golden hour', tho for me I prefer the 10-minute period either as the sun pokes its head over the horizon, or as it sets in the evening. I also shoot landscapes in the 1/2-hour when there's no sun - just the below-the horizion glow lighting up the sky as well.

Here's a couple
1- Scotch Thistle by early morning light

exif - Fuji X-f1; 625mm [ff equiv]; 1/250s x f5,6 EV -1,0; iso-400

2- Patterson's Curse

exif - Fuji X-s1; 480mm [ff equiv]; 1/250s x f5,6 EV -0,7' iso-200

3- Pebbles at the roadside

exif - Fuji X-s1; 625mm [ff equiv]; 1/420s x f5,6; iso-800

4- Almost Sundown

exif - Fuji X-s1; 160mm [ff equiv]; 1/3500s x f8.0; iso-200

5- Rural farmland & cattle grazing [a multi-image pano stitched using Pixtra]

exif - Fuji X-s1; 200mm [ff equiv]; 1/280s x f5,0; iso-200

As always, feedback & comments welcome

Really like the first two shots, looks as if you can almost feel the light on the flowers.

Aaahhhh get on wif ya and anyway - what comes around goes around

The other option is to migrate to the great land downunder - seriously - and enjoy sun & sand & great weather & all those other things that go with a really great, safe & secure & healthy lifestyle
