Photographers often refer to the first and last hour of daylight as the "Golden Hour." That is because the sun shines a glorious golden hue on the landscape when it is low in the sky. This is a photograph of Emigrant peak, rising above the Yellowstone River, in Montana's Paradise valley. I loved how the dappled sidelight danced on Emigrant peak. The translucent Cottonwood leaves were ablaze with prime fall color, and the clouds were still clinging to the peak as a storm cleared to reveal a dusting of fresh snow above treeline. If you look closely, you can see a couple of intrepid fishermen, testing their luck on one of Montana's famous blue ribbon trout streams. Fun Fact: The Yellowstone River originates in Yellowstone National Park, and is the longest free flowing river (no dams) in the lower 48 United States.
