Missed the shot

This morning as I was taking my dogs for a walk, I spotted a beautiful scene with colours that made me say wow.  I decided to take the shot but by the time I was in position it was gone. That was 30 seconds max. I took the picture anyway.

Those trees in the background were bright and showed in glorious colour. The scene had grabbed my attention.

I continued on because the sun was behind the clouds, at least for a while.

I stopped on my return, less than an hour later, and took another picture.


The vivid light was gone. Guess that is what they mean by the magic hour. Hard to believe it is the same place.
