Those golden moments at twilight are incredibly brief. The golden light hits … and less than 10 minutes later — usually more like five minutes — it’s dark. Maybe that’s just true at this latitude. I think sunset lasted longer in Arizona … and also in Israel. But I’m not sure.

Remembering light tends to be fleeting, both in photography and in memory.

For this challenge, Su Leslie suggests:

  • choose a subject or a scene
  • spend five minutes photographing it – no more!
  • try to see it from many angles, look through something at it, change the light that’s hitting it
  • tag your post #regularrandom and ping back to Desley’s post
  • have fun!

  1. The ‘Golden Hour’ should last longer the higher latitude you are at, generally, but the local terrain and cloud formations can dramatically affect the time it lasts wherever you are. Wide open flat spaces would have longer times than narrow valleys for example. Can you imagine how long it could last near the North Pole when a day can last for 3 months?? 🙂


    1. Good to hear from you again. WordPress has deleted a lot of my connections. Suddenly, I realized you must be one of them! But you were not alone. I wonder where I am missing!! Snowing down there too? Sure is snowing here!
