Weekly Photo Challenge: The Golden Hour

This photo was taken a few years ago at Reesor Lake, Alberta during the Golden Hour-the last hour of sunlight. This week’s Photo Challenge defines the Golden Hour as the first and last hour of sunlight in the day.  Check out other entries here.

    you’ve found the best version of Alberta, it seems!

    I’m not sure about that, a lot of Albertans, perhaps the majority, would say the national parks are the best, Banff, our nation’s oldest, and Jasper, both in the Canadian rockies, both have countless tourists the year round. Or another take might be the best is where one happens to be or live at any given time…reminds me a bit of Paul Tillich’s “eternal now.” 😉

    hi Garth,
    I like to hear the name of Paul Tillich – had to talk about him for my diploma … – greetings by
    I dared to use the name of Jesus as a pathfinder there, maybe wrong; maybe I should mention Luther, the original in Wittenberg, instead? I’m not sure, if he is well known in the USA, for sure they only know Dr. Martin Luther King jr.?

    Thanks for your comment Dietmar. One of my seminary professors, Dr. William Hordern, studied under Tillich at Union Theological Seminary in New York City, and my professor was also Tillich’s assistant for a time, as well as an assistant and student of Reinhold Niebuhr. Jesus, I would say is the best pathfinder ever, as he taught love of enemies and non-violence. As for Luther, well he is definitely known here in North America, with many churches named after him.

    hi Garth,
    Luther Pamphlets Swiped from Museum!
    did you hear about this?

    No I hadn’t heard about this Dietmar, what a loss. “The annoying thing is that we were about to start a complete refurbishment in a few weeks with a much better security concept, surveillance cameras and glass cases fitted with alarms,” said Birkenmeier. Tragic that this wasn’t installed. Perhaps they can trace the culprits if they have records of museum visitors. Hopefully the leaflets were not destroyed and they can still recover them.
