The same evening, a quarter of a mile down the road from the barn in my last post.
The light is still holding its golden glow. It has taken a long time to get here.
There have been so many interesting vignettes along the way and
of course, I needed to stop and work with each of them.
I am really surprised the light has held for so long. This
day is coming to an end. Now, there is only a tiny piece of sun left….
just the smallest sliver showing over the mountains.
Luck is still with me as that tiny sliver of sun light is falling right
on the cabin I have been heading for. There is almost no time left…
Park, grab the gear and run for the right spot where the sliver of light
is just hitting the cabin wall and emphasizing the warmth of the wood
and the brick fireplace chimney. The warm light also added depth to the
green leafy surround and the split rail fence in the foreground.
Three images was all the time I had ….and the light show was over
for the day. The last of the sun disappeared behind the mountains
leaving just the glow from the sky. A great look but without the
spotlighting effect of a bit of direct sunlight.
I was making a few more images, close ups of the cabin, when I turned
to find a local watching me….
both of us enjoying the last of the Lingering Light.
I drove home in the dark….leaving the squirrel to guard the cabin.
A fitting end to the perfect day.
Oh, almost forgot…New classes begin the week of July 9th.
So, if you would like to learn about lighting, how to use your camera,
composition, or just how to get great images. This is the place for you.
