I’m a daylight person. My body wants to hibernate in the winter unless there’s a lot of sun that I can get out into. With summer’s long days fast becoming something to look back on, one tiny consolation is that photography’s magic hours don’t require getting out of bed at such an ungodly hour, nor racing off someplace after supper, to catch early and late day light. Not much of a consolation though… I’d rather have the longer days, thank you.
I caught this dahlia yesterday reaching out with its petals to soak up one last little piece of sunlight before the sun disappeared behind the trees on its journey west.
