Golden Hour, It’s the Light!

Photography is all about the light, and the best light is arguably during the golden hour, when the sun is low on the horizon just after sunrise, and just before sunset. So for this week’s Sunday Stills Challenge I went through my archives and… Continue Reading “Golden Hour, It’s the Light!”

Morning Moonshots

I regret to say I missed the lunar eclipse earlier this week. I just couldn’t fathom leaving my warm bed in the middle of the night and venturing out alone into the freezing cold. Hmm, now that I put it that way maybe it’s… Continue Reading “Morning Moonshots”

Fire King, Cats, and a River!

What do these disparate things have in common? Jade green, of course! I’ll start with Jadeite Fire King – have you heard of it? It’s collectible glassware from the 40’s, 50’s and 60’s.
