Gooseberry Golden Hour

- by Stephanie M. Daigle

This week's theme: Colour Photography

Colour photographs capture a scene or a subject as they appear. When we think of dramatic pictures or atmospheric images, we often think of photographs in black and white. Perhaps we think this way because for us, colour is an everyday thing. Maybe it's because visually, a world in colour is more complex. A world in colour may contain more subtleties, but it can be just as dramatic and striking as one in black and white. It's all about how we perceive what we are looking at. This week EBSQ's Art of the Day invites you to look at colour a little differently and even if you don't, we hope you enjoy this week of colour photographs.


Art: Gooseberry Golden Hour by Artist Stephanie M. Daigle
Gooseberry Falls is lovely any time of year, but I prefer to go when when the Falls are frozen.   The area is a rough terrain, laden with several types of evergreens, as well as other species of trees growing out of the craggy rock..

The falls are roughly about one quarter mile from where they empty into lake Superior on the north shore, off of the famed "Hwy 61", a song Bob Dylan wrote in his early days.  I happened to visit on this day during the Golden hour, that time of day just before or just after sunset/sunrise,  when everything has a golden tone. The trees were on fire, the ice formations were fabulous, and it was one of my favorite visits to the park.
