The Golden Moment

I had just said goodbye to a friend with whom I had been on a walk. And as I walked down towards the ponds near Laundress Green, I noticed how bright and yellow the leaves of the willows were.

So I walked down to the pond – must have taken me thirty seconds – propped my leg against the little guard rail, and took this photo. And even as I was composing it, the light disappeared.

The light was the last drop of light before the sun dipped below the horizon.

    What a lovely, serene photo! A tonic in this often crazy world of ours.

    That is such a pretty area here in the city, so thanks for capturing what you have.

    1. Thanks. As you say, the more crazy the world becomes, the more we appreciate these breathing spaces.
