Hobson Grove Sunset Treasures

Last week, my husband and I drove five and a half hours to Bowling Green, Kentucky for the Amateur Championships (aka a disc golf tournament).  Thrilled to be out of the car and away from worldly worries, I jumped at the opportunity to tag along with my husband while he played a practice round at the Hobson Grove Disc Golf Course. I could not wait to walk the trails and uncover hidden worlds with my camera lens. Lucky for me, we hit the course at the perfect time of day. As we approached the first hole, the sun was casting visible golden rays upon the greens; this shower of golden light created a dramatic lighting effect, highlighting some while casting intense shadows upon others. It was about an hour prior to sunset. One round of disc golf usually lasts about an hour and a half to two hours. But, because of the tournament, some holes were backed up with players waiting to throw. I was mesmerized by the light on this particular course. The course was incredible… parts of it were wide-open and tamed, while other parts were wildly overgrown and organically stunning. As I walked from hole to hole, I began to notice the sky turning colors. I found myself wandering to a lone blooming tree. It’s view from afar was breathtaking beneath the sunsetting skies. Up-close, there was a multitude of dimly-lit, colorful angles to choose from. I explored this tree until it was time to move on. The day then transitioned into night…
