For the weekly photo challenge, we are supposed to take a pic in natural light, during the golden hour before sunset or after sunrise.
Although other entries I’ve seen look much more golden-colored than my shots, that’s what I’ve got. And this one is from late in that hour after sunrise. The first set I took, about 10 minutes after sunrise, all used the flash. Duh. The second set I took, I had forgotten to insert the SD card. Duh. Uh oh. Clutz! During this set, the light outside was much more golden than the previous two attempts. And when I experimented with “enhance” on the photo editor, it took out the gold and made the look of it more neutral-colored. Don’t worry, I undid that so this photo you see is un-edited.
But I appreciate the opportunity to get up at this magical hour, with a 2-yard piece of fabric from the sewing room wrapped around me sarong-style, because I didn’t want to wake up DH who will be snoring for another hour at least.
This is just one of his piles of wood drying. We had to cut down some trees to better make use of our rooftop solar collectors. Since he is a worker in wood, those trees did not go to the dump, they got sawn into planks for him to make into future furniture and bowls.
