On Friday evening, everything about outside called my name. We've been having extremely odd weather here for the past week--and by that, I mean it's beautiful. Beautiful for October. Sunny and warm and absolutely cloudless.
And that also indicates that golden hour has been blissful these past couple days. I'd been itching to go out in the cornfield down our road and capture some sunlight, so I finally did.
You know how you're not really supposed to go into a cornfield in case you get lost in it?
Well, I did anyway. Carpe diem, you know. Seize the day.
But even though weaving my way among the stalks and beams of light was truly lovely, the amazing part was when I came to a clearing in the corn behind the first number of rows. Yes, this lovely amazing gorgeous field catching the burning rays of sun before they slip behind the trees and out of sight. It took my breath away.
I love moments like that. When I'm not even expecting to get this kind of photo, but it takes me by surprise. It's delightful. I think maybe, this is why I keep on snapping away.
Carpe diem, yes. But also, seize the moment.
ps--new blog design! yes/no/other thoughts?
