Golden Hour in the German Countryside

 I took a solo walk through the fields near my inlaws house this weekend. It was a beautiful summer evening and I couldn't have placed myself in a more peaceful scenario if I tried. I stayed out until the sun had disappeared below the hills. Just before the sun fully sets is by far my favorite time to take pictures. You just can't beat the light. In this light, anything beautiful becomes breathtaking...the sort of breathtaking where you have to pause and think about how blessed you are to live in a place so lovely.

That is my favourite time of day. I love to just go stand in our backyard with the dogs and appreciate everything.

The golden hour is so wonderful! These are such great photos of nature. I'm jealous that you have family who live close to all of this.

I love these! As I was driving to visit my boyfriend yesterday I took the route that led me through the lettuce fields and had to stop and get a few pictures. The sun was so right with the fog and the fields, it was amazing! I feel like the most unexpected, unforced pictures always turn out the best.

Germany looks so different from someone elses view^^
I grew up in Germany, but I can't find anything interesting here^^

WOW! The light truly is breathtaking. I only recently learned about 'the golden hour' and now I like to go for a walk, just after sunrise and snap photos. It's amazing how different they look :)
