***Official BimmerPost Photo Contest #48: "Twilight"***

Official BimmerPost Photo Contest #48: "Twilight"

BACKGROUND:

For this contest, dress up like Edward Cullen… just jk

Wiki: Twilight is the time between dawn and sunrise or between sunset and dusk, during which sunlight scattering in the upper atmosphere illuminates the lower atmosphere, and the surface of the earth is neither completely lit nor completely dark. The sun itself is not directly visible because it is below the horizon.

THEME:

I’d like to see some shots taken during twilight time of day.. Beaches, buildings, trees, lakes etc.. pretty much any photo taken during that time, that actually shows it was taken during that time.

Good luck!

Examples (not my photos):

IMPORTANT DATES:

Entries must be submitted to this thread no later than Tuesday, January 17th @ 11:59 PST. Voting begins the following day.

RULES:

1. Any interpretation of the theme that falls within Bimmerpost.com rules is welcome.
2. You must be the person that took the photo. Previous photos are acceptable as long as you are the one that captured the image.
3. One submission per contest, and you cannot resubmit a photo that you've submitted before in a previous contest.
4. Images must be no larger than 800 px in any direction. Links to larger images are allowed but you must have one that is under 800 px for the poll.
5. All contestants must host their own pictures (which includes hosting them on Bimmerpost).
6. All images must have a title.
7. While post processing in Photoshop is allowed, adding or removing parts of the picture is not. In the event a photo is suspected to be "photo-chopped," the contestant will be asked to provide the original picture.

I'm offering one you've seen before, but is the only shot that I can find that fits the theme.

Snake River Gorge, Twin Falls, Idaho

I've been to Twin Falls now, and that picture has so much more meaning now... it's a neat geographical feature in Idaho

That's the golf course in the picture right? So that puts you under that bridge?

Yes, it's a golf course. I took the photo from an observation platform just downstream from the bridge. There are several observation platforms that stick out over the gorge and a path that runs beside the gorge near the Outback Steakhouse. I read that the bridge is a popular place for bungee jumping.
