Only in Bucks County: Fading Light in Newtown and Yardley

Did I mention that I hate this heat?
I wrote a post about that this time last year, and... NOTHING'S CHANGED. 
The only time I enjoy being outside has been in the early evening and at night.
Back in my Wedding photographer/Bar Mitzvah photographer days, I preferred taking portraits of people around 7:30-8:00 pm because of the lighting. No one looks bad in 8:00 pm summer light!
I'd never considered landscape photography as the day light fades, but I've been outside taking photos at twilight all summer and I'm so pleased with the way they look!
They capture the feeling of the end of a long summer day.
Low light can be challenging, especially without a tripod, but I am enjoying the challenge.
The photos below are completely unedited, and I think I've done a great job capturing the remaining light.
