Photography’s Golden Hour

I took this photo this evening between 7:00 and 8:00. This was the hour before sunset, also known as the golden hour. It is also called the magic hour. In the morning, the hour after sunrise is also a golden hour. During these times, the sun’s angle filters the light, and colors are more saturated and vibrant.

All of these photos were taken during that Golden hour. By looking on a weather app, I was able to learn that sundown today would occur at 8:00, so I planned to take photos during the prior hour. If this is something new to you, I hope you’ll go outside during that magical hour and take photos. Even if you don’t have a camera, the rich colors areĀ  obvious and a joy to see.
