The first time I took this picture Saturday, my phone did not save it. I had to wait 24 very long hours to get the same lighting. I edited with my Canon software and added the lens filters, which were too much fun.
There is something about the golden hour which just makes my heart and soul so happy and content. I don’t care where in the world I am, it has to do with that soft light and how it casts shadows on the grass and trees. I think my best memories in life have occurred during the golden hours. Science has proven that the soft light of the sun immediately calms one’s spirit. Sunlight rays travels better through thicker air the closer it is to earth, hence the warm tones spread all around. This picture was taken around 5:40 PM. Due to summer hours, the sun was a bit high, but it was close enough for the shadow effects on the grass.
I’m doing a lot of my editing using my apps on my phone, so the black borders is something you’ll be seeing for the rest of the year. I used to have black borders when Photobucket was acting normal and had awesome editing tools, but now I’ve figured how I can do the same things on my phone. I’ve always liked my pictures with black borders anyways.
