Golden Days

The other day I went out to take some photos at “the golden hour” as we photographers call it. Heh heh. Maggie came along to protect me from sunburn or vicious groundhogs or something… or perhaps she was just bored. XD

We have a grand old maple in our front yard that’s usually the first to turn colors.

Even though the year is going down in flames, you could say, there were still some bright, spring-like greens around.

Maggie trotted faithfully along beside me and guarded me while I sat and took pictures. ♥ She was on the lookout for those vicious groundhogs, I suppose. XD

The sun turned my hair really a bright red. It’s a little bit reddish-goldish like this in real life, but not this bright! (Yes, I know, rather random pictures. But it was fun!)

Please excuse the photobombers (Maggie and my toes).

 

It’s kind of awkward when you’re trying to photograph your hair (for some reason) so you hold a strand in front of your face and then your dog comes over to make sure you’re not paralyzed or something since you haven’t gotten up for the past 30 seconds or so… *Sigh* XD

You can see the gorgeous sky peeking through the grass in this one. That was probably one of the prettiest skies I’ve seen not counting sunsets!

I love this picture because 1.) look at the bokeh and 2.) look at the cute wittle spiderweb garland hung on the grass! The spiders must have been having a welcome party for autumn.

And lastly but not leastly, I shall leave you with an extremely hilarious picture of Maggie trying to chase down an itch. XD XD XD

BWAHAHAHAHA! Sooo funny!

So there you go. Photos from the golden hour on a golden day in the golden season. Gold is nice, don’t you think?

P. S. Sometimes I don’t like fall because it’s too beautiful. 😛 But seriously, do you ever have that feeling when something’s so beautiful you can’t stand it so you whip out your camera in a frantic attempt to save some of the beauty and capture it forever and that helps a little bit but it’s still just too much? Or is that just me…

      P. S. I use a Nikon Coolpix L830. 🙂 It’s a lovely camera, and I would highly recommend it! They actually don’t make my model anymore – they make a L840. 🙂

          1. Allison, you know how search engines are? Where people can look up the title of a post that I made on google or bing- and SEE it? Well, no matter how much I look up ‘leash training pups’ (my most recent post) I can NOT find it on my blog! And it has some tips that I think might be helpful- I’m not sure why it’s not on google…

                    1. Okay, it’s actually really simple. Just go to your WP Admin and choose the “Reading” tab under “Settings.” Scroll down till you get to the “Site Visiblity” section, and choose “Allow search engines to index this site.” Hope that helps!

                    2. Okay! Thanks…but for some reason it was already on the allow search engines to index this site… oh well. I clicked it anyways..maybe it will work..OOR! Maybe it’s just the computer. Can you look up “Leash Training Pups” and see if there’s one from cuddly critters?

                    3. Aww, bummer! Okay, let me check… Hmm, I searched for several different things but it didn’t come up until I searched for “leash training pups cuddlycritters.wordpress.com” 😦 But it DID come up then! I think what’s the matter is just that there are soooo many other posts and websites about leash training dogs that your post just gets mixed in somewhere in the middle of those pages where it’s hard to find. 😥

    ~Grace ♥ with the code alphabet? Well, I’ve been trying to do it, but it won’t work. :\ I only have numbers at the top of my keyboard, not at the right. Do you think that could be why it isn’t working? 🙂
    Thanks! 😀

    1. Aww, THANK YOU SO MUCH, GRACE! 😀 😀 That’s so sweet! ♥
      P. S. Hmm… that’s weird. That could be, because on our computer it only works with the number keypad on the right side. That’s too bad. 😦

  4. Your photos are beautiful, Allison! You are a professional photographer! 😉 Hmmm, I don’t think I’ve felt like you said at the end of your post, although I love the beauty of nature and capturing it in photography, you can go see 3 pictures I’ve taken here: http://thisredeemedgirl16.blogspot.com/2016/11/through-your-eyes-photography-contest.html . And after that post, just scroll down for entry 2 and entry 1!! Let me know what you think! 😀
