Golden Silence

It is called the golden hour, the time around sunrise and sunset. There is the touch of silence. A sunset hour spent along the coastline can be enriching for the seabreeze, scenery and mood-changing light … and more.

It is a quiet time. One’s mood becomes part of the changing light that deepens the colors and enhances contrasts, until almost everything turns into silhouettes, backlit by the setting sun.

The view
A sea of time
Between palms

People stand out more like free individuals when the light comes from one side and they appear as silhouettes. The noise of the day lowers and the presence of silence settles.

Suddenly familiar objects are different, resemble something else. There are no superficial distinctions anymore. Everyone and everything appear neutral and a hidden unity reveals itself.
