Weekly Photo Challenge: The Golden Hour


I confess I’ve taken many more photos at dusk than at dawn.  I grew up in Australia so I’m still fascinated by the long European twiight in the summer. I also love the opaque light in The Netherlands, so beloved of their great painters.

My selection for this week…..

Twlight in Brussels.  The promise of escape ….

through the bars and out into the world

Evening clouds and a thunderstorm brewing… Aveyron,France.


Weak winter sun going down over the North Sea.  Scheveningen, Netherlands.


Tide going out, sun going down, going home.  Hawkesbury River, Australia.

  2. I think most of us are more frequent dusk than dawn photographers. Let’s face it, by the time dusk rolls around we are at least awake. It takes some pretty strong determination for me to get my a** in gear and be sentient for dawn, which happens around 5am here at this time of year.

    Anyway, loved your photos and I’m following for inspiration and education. No pressure, though. :-b
