Briefly Golden

As you have heard from the news, we have had some seriously cold weather. For us, this has included on occasion, some very special light---- i call it HyperLight. It is extremely clear, dry and very bright air--- probably dangerous to skin, plants, etc.

In this image one can see the pale, bright blue sky and the morning sun coming over the ridge and illuminating the trees. One usually has to hustle to capture this brief phenomena --- on this day it lasted quite awhile----froze my fingers-----

We sometimes see this light late in the afternoon, and particularly after a storm. It is magical, when it happens. Great light. Great capture, Jenn. Beautiful photo.

The light looks a mazing Jenn - I'll bet it was hard to capture exactly what you saw
and felt. In the Scottish Outer Hebrides there is beautiful light - a gift to phoyographers.
Glad you captured some of yours.
