The Golden Hour….

The Golden Hour is a photographic term relating to the first and last hour of sunlight during the day when the light takes on quite spectacular properties. In the same way you look again and again at a favourite painting or listen repeatedly to a piece of music, I don’t think I’ll ever tire of seeing the Yorkshire Dales in the evening sunshine….

Here’s a few shots from last night – all the pictures were taken from Fremington Edge looking over the picturesque village of Reeth and were taken within 20 minutes of each other – the fast moving clouds altering the look of the countryside minute by minute….
