Golden Hour

Golden Hour


In photography, the golden hour (sometimes known as magic hour, especially in cinematography) is a period shortly after sunrise or before sunset during which daylight is redder and softer compared to when the Sun is higher in the sky. (Ref)

    • Thank-you for your kind comments. Good-luck with your saving. I hope you get what you want soon. I have recently joined instagram and started using my phone. I find it most difficult. I point and shoot blind because of the screen glare. I have no idea what the shot looks like until I get in the shade. 🙂

  3. Hi Kristin and thanks, I appreciate that you like my music and thanks for your feedback earlier. I spent this afternoon checking out how my blog appears on other computers (older computers and OSs, different OSs etc.) – something I took for granted before (because I’ve never had a problem with posting before). One thing I was struck by were the ads I saw for the first time on my blog – I came home and immediately subscribed to have them removed. All the best, Phil


    • Gee, I wouldn’t have thought my blog would look any different.. Ads too you say! Do you see any ads on mine?


      • I haven’t seen any ads on your blog. Regarding mine, it displayed differently on older OSs – that’s understandable, but I had never bothered about it and it was important for me to see this – same with the ads. It’s one thing to see a little white box with the words that people viewing my blog might see ads, its another to see those ads and how they affect how the blog looks. I’d never thought about it re- my blog, even when I have seen how (in my view) ads detract from the blogs of others. Anyhow, it’s all sorted now. Phil
