The Magic Hour

“Twice each day the cool, blue light of night interacts with the warm tones of daylight. Luckily for color photographers, these events, though predictable, are not consistent. For a full hour at either end of the day colors of light mix together in endless combinations, as if someone in the sky were shaking a kaleidoscope.” Galen Rowell (1940-2002)

We strive to capture the light that transforms land, sea and the legacy of man into a scene that stirs the emotions and senses. More often than not, this quality of light can be found during the ‘magic hour’ that Galen Rowell describes in his classic book “Mountain Light”. Our aim is to communicate the beauty of the world, natural or man-made, in the mood that has been illuminated by the conditions. We hope the viewer will share our anticipation and excitement as the light unfolds.
