Twilight

There is a big ruckus going on here in Texas about a book and movie called Twilight. I have not read the book and I have not seen the movie but I have experienced twilight many times. Twilight is the beautiful time of day moving into night when everything turns golden and beautiful. It is a time of day that I long to catch perfectly in pictures and will continue to try until it happens. I have taken a few pictures that I will share with you of a magical golden twilight that I got to experience one winter day while travelling. The pictures are not perfect as I would like but I do think they will convey a bit of what I got to experience that golden moment.


I just love how the light falls on everything at this time of day. It makes everything seem so special with its golden rays.

It causes you to notice things that at other times you look past. Notice how the grasses and weeds even seem so much more special
This moment was so special for me as I snapped pictures it became even more blessed. Out of the corner of my eye I saw some movement and I captured it on film. I was too far away to get really clear beautiful pictures like I would like but I did get to capture the moment on film. There were some deer grazing on the same field as the cattle. They had left the safety of a stand of trees to graze on the field.


They must have caught my scent or noticed me moving because suddenly they were running away. Oh how I love moments like this. They are so fleeting that it makes them even more special when you get blessed with them. It is one of the things that makes this wonderful state of Texas so special. If there is a moral to this post I guess it would be to look around you and find your special blessings (I promise they are there) and enjoy them completely.

Those pictures almost look sepia toned. Okay, I'm curious. What's the ruckus about this movie?

Sorry for the long absence, Debbie. Life's been a bit busy over in North Texas. Your pictures of the real twilight is amazing! Glad you had the chance...

What beautiful and peaceful pictures!You really have an eye for beauty! I have a photo I took this past winter of the deer crossing my driveway at twilight in the snow with the sun setting in the sky above them. I think I may have posted it on my site. It was a very special moment caught on film. Have a great day! Hugs, Loretta

How very beautiful and tranquil, and capturing those shots of the deer just rounds off the whole sequence.

Hi
I love your photos they are wonderful.
Thank you for sharing them.
I love Twilight Time ,
I can hear my Dad singing on the way back from the barn .
Of course with age this precious moment called Twilight gets sweeter to me all the time.
I have not read the book or seen the movie so I have no idea what the hoopla is all about .
What I do know is Twilight time meant we had to settle down at the drive in picture show because the movie was about to start.
Twilight was the time that we headed back to the house after checking the barn doors,pasture gate etc.....
Thank you so much for bringing back some wonderful childhood memories for me.
Blessings to you.

I love the photos. I am a native Texan now transplanted in the Midwest. How I miss it. The twilight was a pleasant time of cooling down, I believe, from the heat that is so prevalent there. I'll be checking often, and I am also a 'Debbie'.
