Redux: Golden Hour Portrait

Challenge #56 in the Ways of Seeing series. Hosted by jezsik.
Challenge has finished
The first and final hour(s) of the day, when the sun is just above the horizon, provides unusual natural lighting opportunities. The low angle of the sun creates long shadows and simultaneously diffuses and warms the light. This "golden hour" allows for quite dramatic portraiture. Show off your best golden hour portrait image. (Note additional rules.)

Shot just as the sun was about to dip the horizon. Amazing light that day. Not a lot of that light though, had to shoot at ISO 1600.
