Weekly Photo Challenge: The Golden Hour

Living an hour away from “civilization” (meaning the nearest city), grocery shopping and running errands get wrapped into a weekly day trip to the Shenandoah Valley. When I return home at the end of the day, I am always hoping that I can make it to the top of this mountain by sunset. This time, I was rewarded with a gorgeous golden sunset from the Shenandoah Mountain overlook:

    Hi Annette, I live just a couple or three hours down the road from you In abingdon, Virginia. Don’t we have the most lovely sunrises and sunsets. I loved yours.


  7. Dina says:

    Wow – the best presentation of this theme I have seen so far. Absolutely gorgeous!


  8. That’s a stunning golden photo….I love your landscape, and the way you capture it’s fleeting beauty 🙂


    • Seonaid – I just found this comment in the SPAM folder – what’s wrong with that?! And to think that I just deleted a full spam folder a few days ago – who knows what else was in there?
      Thanks for your comment – “fleeting beauty” is so apt, because a minute or two later, the show was over….

    The light on those foreground trees, and the layers of the mountains in the background, along with the sun peeking in from the left, perfect!


  10. Here I am! I told you I’d drop by … and I was greeted with this beautiful image. I have never been in Virginia though, from your photo, it would seem to represent the overlap of three states with which I am familiar, Massachusetts, New York, and Pennsylvania. I relate to living far from civilization. Joanna and I once determined that we live four hours from everywhere! That’s not to say that groceries and the feed store aren’t closer, but all the big cities are half-a-day’s drive from us. Very much the double-edged sword. Anyway … thanks for the Pairodox visit. I’ll be back. D PS: I’d be interested to know how you happened upon Pairodox Farm?

    I’m jealous! That is a GREAT shot.



  12. Very beautiful! I haven’t seen Shenandoah Valley yet, but you made me wanna go there! I like the contrast in your photo, and the colors are truly golden. Thank you for sharing this beautful view with us./Maria

    Breathtaking, I remember a song from many years ago, but never knew what Shenandoah was.
