Landscape photographers will know that the hour around dusk is often described as the golden hour, because of the quality of the light. This description is particularly true after a thunder storm, as these images show. The back-lit clouds drift over the ridges and descend into the valleys, as the sun begins to sink below the horizon. These photographs were taken from the verandah, so there is no need to trek into the countryside. Here, at Cardamom House, you can take your prize-winning shots from the comfort of a chair!
