There is a window of time at the end of the day where the light becomes animated and magical; where the plants glow with a soft golden orange hue. It only lasts for fifteen minutes or so. We photographers call that “sweet light.”
This shot is from the end of that period – just past the peak of the contrast and color saturation – and moving into the lower contrast lighting of dusk.
