In the Gloaming Hours

Suzanne Carr Rossi’s word of the day she got in her email account this morning was "Gloaming", meaning "twilight, as at early morning or (especially) early evening; dusk."

As photographers, we are often on the hunt for either good moments, good light, or ideally both. In the fall, the prime light hours of dawn and dusk often creates a light that turns whatever it hits into gold. This kind of light is the butter on the bread, making a leaf on the ground or the side of a building suddenly glow.

The sun this morning provided just that on my way to work. Here’s to the hunt for light and the season that makes it a bit more spectacular.
