VivaChas! Golden Hour Sunset Glowing Clouds

When I'm making the "created" photographs for the Hot Rodney Hot Rods section of the VivaChas! photographic line of images I often use backgrounds I've shot on other occasions.  Just like U I'm often out and about when I come across something beautiful I simply must snap.  Or as ol'what'shername often has me doing - setting up in a scenic spot and waiting for the beauty to descend  -  sort of how Grace descends on a Christian believer - It's a free gift of love - - And so here is a vision of beauty in the eye of this  beholder ~:0) Such is the case with this image of a sunset snapped whilst facing away from the setting sun and viewing the golden sunlit and yet brooding clouds of a warm summer's eve.  Those used to chasing such events refer - and rightly so - to the time as the "Golden Hour".  It's a time when the sun illuminates for a few fleeting moments what has heretofore been hidden from view - - - It is a time for opening one's eyes and one's heart to a reality that might have been missed and therefore left one diminished.  I'm all for open eyes and snapping at opportunity when it is so robustly presented - G'onyall - with much warmth ~:0) VivaChas!
