An Afternoon Glimpse

There is just something about the afternoon light............
....the way it softly bounces off of the walls......

...and changes the tones of the paint...soft...........
..............................linear...

.............crisp.....................


Tranquility.

Yes, lovely indeed. There are so many great parts of the day. I love the mornings when the birds are starting to chirp and the air is clean with just a hint of chill. Then there is the evening when the shadows are growing and everthing takes on a glow.

Beautiful, lovely, serene......and you are a very big tease. ROFL Don't make me beg to see more and embarrass myself ;-) There is something about dried hydrangeas, particularly the green, that just melt me. Beautiful! I am loving the glimpses of your colors.

The Old Painted Cottage said...

I've heard photographers call that the "magic hour", when everything has a soft glow and the light is buttery soft. When I have time, I just may attempt to try this too..thanks for the inspiration!

Plus your photos are absolutely stunning, as always!
