The Magic Hour

Strange things happen to the light in the last minutes before sunset.  And in Windhoek, during the “rainy season” (usually December and January) it’s even more extreme.  Every night, there are a few minutes where everything turns a brilliant yellow as the sun dips near the horizon.  Usually there is a gap in the clouds just above the horizon that results in the clouds going all shades of orange and pink.  And if you’re lucky, it’s raining somewhere in the distance, which will turn a bright orange haze.  It happens every night.  How we suffer here.  And it’s virtually impossible to capture with a camera.

But if you can imagine to be someplace really cool or interesting when that moment comes, the pictures will be amazing.  Best I could do was my dog….
