The Golden Hour! Sunset!steemCreated with Sketch.

in photography •  21 days ago

Yesterday's advancing rain clouds formed a perfect setting for a great sunset! Let me show you more!

In my previous post I showed you some amazing cloud formations that told me that rain was on it's way and the rain made its appearance overnight to end this morning at about 11am. But this post is about the golden hour that appeared late yesterday afternoon.
Come and watch the magic with me!

As usual I took the shots at all sides, North, South, East and West!

Due West and you can see the sinking sun at the bottom of the shot!

Due North and the first picture was also at the northern end of the show!

Here to show the bigger picture of the western side!

And of course the Eastern side!

A bright yellow and look at the fairy lights of the sun to the left of my name!

And finally. look at the golden tinge on the tip of the signal mountain behind our house!

I had a great time watching this golden hour and just the name "Golden Hour" reminds me of the "The Golden Rule" that we have to obey in life, if we want a decent and peaceful life.
But what is this Golden Rule?
Simply to "Treat all others as you yourself also want to be treated"

Now, I am not going to preach here, but just to say that it costs nothing to be decent and kind to others. If only we would learn that whatever bad that we do, say or think about others, we are in fact doing it to ourselves.
Think about it!

We hope you have enjoyed the pictures and thank you for visiting a post by @papilloncharity

Got it !!
Good luck When you enter

Thank you so much for your time to find it! I will certainly have a look, as I have only entered one contest this far and it was for Photo Friday. I won the contest and never entered again in an effort to give others a chance. Not because of conceit I assure you, but rather because of fairness!

Blessings!

I have another one, involving your lovely furry one that didnt want to go into the water, want to know the tag and contest ?

Certainly and thank you for your kindness!

Much appreciated

Love photos - especially ones of sunrise and sunset.

·

Thank you and glad that you liked the post! Blessings!

Beautiful sunset! Such gentle clouds.
Very impressive in all directions.
Coincidence: I also wanted to show a couple of sunsets today. :)

·

Thank you my friend and I don't believe in coincidence, as I prefer to look at things more spiritually. We are one soul! Blessings!

Beautiful pictures @papilloncharity. I really like how you went to each of the directionals.

As for your passage, I don't think it's preachy at all. I have spent my life living by those words. Yes, I have wondered sometimes if it's worth it since I have been used due to my kindness. That is where I need to stand my ground. Not everyone is going to treat you the way to treat them. If they don't, move on. Be cordial in the future, but don't put yourself in a bad situation.

Thanks for sharing 😊

·

Thank you and so true my friend! The danger is that we become angry at those that mistreat us instead of feeling sorry for them. Yes indeed, we walk away from them, but we also pray for them, as they don't know what they are doing. Blessings!

Congratulations! Your post was selected by the @dropahead Curation Team (dCT)

Thank you brother Joel! Your kind words and support are always sincerely appreciated! Blessings!

Nice photos...I always loved looking up at the sky, the combination of clouds and celestial bodies (I guess the sun and the moon also count as well?) makes it a piece of art whenever you look at it.

...we are in fact doing it to ourselves.

Remember that if you throw a hammer up to the sky, it'll fall right onto your head...it's the same thing ;)

·

Thank you my friend and I love your response; "if you throw a hammer up....'' I have heard "the wheel turns" and "karma", but my first time to hear yours. Brilliant!

Gorgeous shots such lovely warm colors of nature

·

Thank you JJ, beauty is certainly in the eye of the beholder! Blessings!

·

I just loved the third photograph and the second last one amazing clixxx

·

Thank you! This is one of the reasons why I almost always post a variety my friend, in an effort to suit different tastes! Blessings!

Your pictures made reflect about how much time we waste looking for beauty in the form of material things yet the beauty is there right in front of us.

·

Very true my friend and the best of all is that real beauty is free!

I'm a bot. I detect haiku.

Golden hours have been amazing this past few weeks Stephen, agree with your feelings in life about how we treat each other.

·

Thank you Lady Joan, I knew you would understand how I feel. Tired of fighting, anger, pride, and all the rest of it! Best is to avoid it permanently and if that means being isolated, so be it. Peace in the soul takes precedence! Blessings!

The older one gets the more futile you realize this bickering is, knuckle down and do your best every day is my motto Stephen.

Very nice sunset pictures. I especially like the 2nd last one with the trees on both sides.

Thank you and I am glad that you found one that you liked!
Blessings!
