golden hour sunset on a wheat field

Delaware Farm Country Sunset

The golden hour is called that because of the golden tones that are created by the sun as it passes through the atmosphere when it’s close to sunset and sunrise. The lighting is so pretty, that people like it and will pay for photos taken then over photos taken in the middle of the day (most times anyways).

Agriculture is an important industry in Delaware. I like seeing all the Amish farms and homes and folks going about their lives in defiance of modern conveniences.

I loved the gold bands sweeping across this wheat field and the colors in the sky

The sun briefly cast this redgold coloring on the white, simple one room school house. The colors were echoed in the sky too. Yes there are two outhouses at the left side of the shot.
