The Golden Hour with Extra “Sauce”.

When the sun is hovering tentatively above the horizon, merely thinking about setting, reaching it’s golden fingers across the valley floor to touch the maple trees in such a way as to gild their verdant leaves a very particular shade of flaxen sage, almost as if it is bidding the trees goodnight.

It’s even more impressive when a dark and menacing thunder storm seems to be hurrying the sun to it’s bed below the horizon. The contrast is quite otherworldly. This is my favorite kind of sunset.
