The Golden Hour
August 20, 2013
by Stan G. Webb

Photographic shoot on the top of Grouse Mountain [http://grousemountain.com/] from 5 to 10:30 P.M . Glad I took an extra sweater; forgot about all of the mosquitoes [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mosquito] and no-see-ums http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/No-see-ums] that would be waiting to eat me alive…forgot my Muskol [http://www.muskol.com/index_en.htm]. Took lots of photographs and videographs that I will get around to posting, in a while. Photographers call the hour after sunrise and the one hour before sunset The Golden Hour.
