The unique light presented during the golden hours – the time just after sunrise and just before sunset – is a beautiful sight to be seen. The strong angle of the sun creates strong shadows and brings out texture that is not visible during the day, illustrating how much your scene can change with different lighting.
The golden hours can completely transform a landscape -it has the power to outline subjects with a line of golden light (also known as rim lighting) and illuminate the atmosphere of a misty morning sunrise.
Many landscape photographers will only photograph their scenes under this light – the amount of depth and drama possible is unparalleled to anything the daytime can present.
Take a moment and browse through our stunning collection of golden hour photos. From portraits to landscapes, you can create an awe-inspiring scene by photographing during this small window of opportunity.
