In the picture above, I captured the sun beginning to get low over the old oak trees at my husband's parent's home. I absolutely love those big swaths of golden highlight landing on the ground and tree on this evening. When I see that golden sun, I get so excited. This is the color of my favorite time of the day. I thought it created a beautiful and peaceful scenario with the benches under the tree. Yet, for me, the subject of this image is the earthy colors. The greens, golds and warm brown tones are what attracts my attention. When I posted the image to my flickr group for discussion, some of the comments made me smile. So many said they thought this looked like a nice place to sit and relax or read a book. This was truly a great compliment because I knew that my image evoked a certain mood as they pictured themselves in this very setting.
