Golden Lights

In search of beautiful light is always a quest for photographers and golden light of sunrise, sunsets, beautiful sunlit trees, cloudy days and waterfront are ones we truly delight in.  The rolling hills and fields in the countryside spun with golden lights are also a favorite.  There is beauty of golden light to be found everywhere if we just pursue it.  A recent interior design project sent us on a journey for just the right light and color for fine art prints to complete our design.  With our blue and white project, what is more beautiful than golden light hues coupled with the classical softness of HDR.  The six images for this “Art on Canvas” project are thus entitled “Golden Lights.”

“Above yon gleaming skies of gold 
One lone imperial peak is seen; 
While gathered at his feet in green 
Ten thousand foresters are told:
And all so still! so still the air 
That duty drops the web of care. 
 
Beneath the sunset’s golden sheaves 
The awful deep walks with the deep, 
Where silent sea doves slip and sweep.”*

Amelia Island – Come Walk With Me

Amelia Island – Come Walk With Me 2:

I love to walk…beach, mountains, hills, woods and anywhere where I am surrounded by nature or beautiful architecture with my camera gear in tow ready to capture the beauty of it. I especially love to walk the beach at sunrise and sunset.  Amelia Island is the perfect place for nature walkers (and photographers, of course) for feasts of delights for the eyes and soul.  From the majestic ocean and Intracoastal Waterway views to the glorious sunrise-sunsets, boardwalk waterways and marshes, to the Sunken Forest, Aury Island, Drummond Point Park and Walker’s Landing and more — it’s a little heavenly bit of Eden on earth.


On this year’s Amelia Island photo tour, we spent days walking the trails throughout the island winding through Spanish moss-draped live oaks and palmettos which opened to gorgeous ocean and marsh views.  A gear-laden photog can exhaust themselves very quickly so with Canon5dMII and tripod in tow, I left our gear [that’s it right there sitting on the sand in the middle of the photo] to follow the walk to the open marshes to view its plethora of waterfowl, wildlife, flora and after shooting, we returned and I was glad to see the gators, crocks or a photog wannabe  had not absconded with our gear!

And finally, the anticipation of the “Sunken Forest” that trails down, then winding up to spectacular views of the ocean.  My new favorite private spot on the island. It doesn’t get better than this — sunrise in all its glory!

There’s more to come…watch for new postings. Until then, enjoy the views and if you want a truly enjoyable photography adventure, visit Amelia Island.

Another Morning Sunrise

Happy Autumn that is here! For the love of early Autumn that we have waited for…sharing a favorite post.

A few more images from the beautiful early morning sunrise “Secret Lake” before we begin the fall foliage, winter and snow images.  The Eastern skies have been incredible this year and as the temperatures drop they become even more intense, bold and colorful.
