The image this month was taken by Julie on one our Las Vegas trips. We are looking South toward Lake Mead, and we are about 20 miles East of Nellis AFB. It is late in the afternoon and we are near the “magic hour”. The magic hour, or golden hour, is when the sun is low either in the first hour after sunrise or the last hour prior to sunset. It is a great time to get long shadows that are not too harsh, gorgeous warm colors, and less glare from high sun angles that often mute colors and blow out the whites. The overall colors tend to be redder and softer.
We take these trips every month to shoot solar farms around Vegas, Blythe, Palmdale, and in the San Joaquin Valley.
Keep cool and have a great August,
