We are in July now. The sun has been setting later and later since early spring. And you thought that before the real dark falls, the daylight dwindles by the hour. Imaginative but not right.

Have you ever heard about the magic hour? If not, let me tell you more about it.

When it seems to be getting darker, the sun lingering will suddenly become so glorious like it will never be again; a golden light will cover the whole world and cast everything- the trees, buildings, rice fields and so on- with crowns. It is the last radiance of the setting sun. It is not an old man dying, but the hour soon followed by stars and a new day.
