Hope everybody is having a great ABC Wednesday !

Someone once told me about the golden-hours of photography, and that I should probably just put my camera away during the middle of the day.   Of course that isn't always practical or necessary, but I still think it's pretty good advice.

Throughout the years there have been many occasions when the camera was not to hand and I wished it was.

For me any time is a good time! :)
Some are better than others, but you can catch good stuff ant time of the day.
Great abstract again!
Cheers, Klaus

And you have shown us why - but as you say, not always practical. I wouldn't have been able to make my I !

That is beautiful! I was having a bit of a challenge with 'I' because I didn't want to to take a picture of my ice cubes. My camera is not good enough to make it interesting.

I like Pier39, and the Sea lions are great. I can see why locals would find a tourist spot tacky...but it's fun for the tourist. We had fun in San Francisco. I love the hills, it's great for jogging.

I love the golden hours too but I'm not always ready for them.
Love the patterns in this I shot. Lots of texture.

Thee are very nice work - and the foggy mountains below are just stunning!

Hi, thanks for visiting my blog.
I agree about the golden hour for photography but sometimes you may be somewhere in the middle of the day and see something that needs to be photographed and so you take a pic.

True art! Both this and the header are glorious. (And golden.)

I have heard that about the afternoon as well...but I don't listen to it! A very nice photo you have here today!
