4:30pm in February
February 12, 2013

For me, there is no better light, January, February, March, late afternoon, with the sun low, the best of it lasts for 20 minutes, if you are lucky. Now, I do not consider myself a ‘light snob’, a term (of endearment) I reserve for many of my photographer friends – they know who they are. The ones I know that will ONLY shoot if the light is just right, even perfect, if there is such a thing. I on the other hand have been known to force the photo when needed, worst case scenario, it does not work. I will push that ISO up as high as it will go, open the aperture and give up depth and hold my breath to shoot handheld at 1/15th of a second. But this time of year there is no need.  Just be in the right place, at the right time and watch for it.  Some evening this week, take a second and look for it, the orange/yellowish blanket over the trees, houses, maybe find a church steeple or something high, that’s where it start and it will slowly take over until it loses out to dusk. Appreciate it, because it is not always here and most of us never even notice.
