Photo of the Day (5.3.09)

Photographers like to describe the last hour of sunlight before the sun goes down as “the magic hour.” Colors somehow seem more brilliant. Shadows lengthen. All the world somehow seems lit by a golden hue of color and light. Even though this photo of Corsica by Flickr user Michael Joseph Goldst… etc is in black and white, I think it’s a great example of a “magic hour” photo. I love the long shadows and brilliant sun in the background. It lends an air of the surreal to the whole shot, like it was some strange dream.

Have any travel photos you’d like to share with the world? Why not add them to our Gadling group on Flickr? We might just pick one of yours as our Photo of the Day.
