Sometimes, we ask our photographer, Rob Karosis, to work overtime and take some photographs as the sun goes down. This is usually after he has already put in a 10 hour day, but he never complains, (out loud). The extra effort is always worth it! A dusk shot can often reveal features of a home which are missed during the day. The windows become illuminated while the exterior materials become more monochromatic. We are forced to notice the proportions of the openings and the drama of the lighting that only is seen at dusk.
There is also something particularly inviting about coming home on a winter evening to the warm glow of a home at dusk.

What a great post. To stand outside in my yard, or drive up the driveway, and see my home lit up in the dusk, or after dark, evokes deep feelings of warmth, safety, family. So whenever I am expecting evening guests, especially if it’s my children and grandchildren, I light every room to welcome them. I never thought about the architectural aspect, but the homes in your photos really do look magical in the twilight.
Beautiful work! As usual :)
