The golden hour (or sometimes that magic minute)
FRISCO — I hadn’t downloaded the pics of my Nikon DSLR for about 10 days, but after a quick shoot during Wednesday’s sunrise, I knew I had a couple of worthwhile shots. In a pleasant surprise, I found a few more images from the past week or two that weren’t quite as bright as the spectacular wave cloud, but still decent images of late fall, including the full moon setting over Buffalo Mountain.
Large-scale autumn shifts in the weather pattern are often heralded by the appearance of wave clouds over the crest of the Rockies. When they form early in the morning, sunrise can be magnificent.
This is a shot from a couple of weeks ago that I just downloaded from my DSLR. Sunrise light on the foreground trees helps balance the brightness of the moon, which appears to be rolling down the broad shoulder of Buffalo Mountain.
