CFFC: Basically One Colour or Hue

This is my contribution to Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Basically One Colour or Hue.

I thought about some of my visits to the Colpoy’s Bay shoreline for the sunrise. That got me thinking about the blue hour and golden hour.

Throwback Thursday

Golden Hour Autumn Mist

Throwback Thursday travels back to Bickerton Hill, Cheshire, England in the mid 1990s.

An early start to the day meant that I was on top of a section of the Hill when the autumn mist was being illuminated by the rising sun. I had a long telephoto mounted on the tripod and was isolating interesting area’s across the valley.

Golden hour autumn colour.


Long shadows at sunset.

Thursday evening of week 40 saw me looking for autumn colour on some local back roads during the golden hour.

I was rather disappointed with the autumn colour but noticed the long shadows and warm evening light on my favourite old barn. I ended up walking along a ditch to get to a position where my shadow wouldn’t be in shot.

Trees and mist.

Alternatively, part one of using a telephoto to isolate sections of the landscape as this may be an ongoing topic.

For this shot I was on a local back road looking for Eastern Meadowlarks during the golden hour one morning. I noticed the low sun was illuminating some distant trees with patches of mist amongst them.

Having a long telephoto on the tripod I started framing some of the trees and mist patches.
