Golden days

Part of living in a Northern clime is that in winter, there is far less sun.  I’ve never lived anywhere as far north as Edinburgh, and I didn’t realize what this would mean for daylight until today, when I was walking down the street at noon and took these pictures.

There is something called the Golden Hour, at sunrise and sunset, where the light filters through the atmosphere and produces particularly beautiful effects on the world and its subjects.  Today, I realized that here, we have a Golden Hour for months and months; the shadows are long, the air is crisp, and on a clear day like today, everything appears more consistently beautiful than it might be at a more southern clime like Florida, or Morocco.

So now, I’m going to post more and more photos of Edinburgh, just to take advantage of the natural advantages of living up North.
