The Golden Hour, original pastel

In the old days of Hollywood movie production, The Golden Hour referred to the first and last half hours of daylight in each day. During those times, the light was imbued with a warm color that made any filmed imagery glow. Today, artists like me and photographers favor these “edges of day” because of the gorgeous light. However, since I’m not a morning person, the golden hour has always referred to the last hour of daylight before sundown (!)

That timing worked to wonderful effect with this view in downtown Philadelphia this past winter. I caught this view looking across South Camac Street in downtown Philadelphia, and I loved how the transition from light into darkness was evident on the buildings and horizon. This warm glow of light does not last long, but if you can time it right, it’s well worth the effort.
