summer outtakes, amsterdam 2013

happy right here…

It has been a super-busy summer – filled with lots of work and welcome visits from distant friends and family – and the (imminent) arrival of the autumnal equinox has taken me somewhat by surprise! Here are some outtakes from this summer past in Amsterdam*…

These snaps were taken on another good walk, over the rocky outcrops and along the beach at Paternoster, during what photographers and cinematographers apparently refer to as the Golden Hour – the last (or first) hour of sunlight during the day. A time of day that is indeed very aptly named, producing wonderful, dreamy qualities of light. As it’s a grey and chilly winter’s afternoon here in Amsterdam I’m enjoying revisiting these ‘golden’ images (taken 18 December 2012) from my recent travels in South Africa…
