Poring Over the Picture

There’s a time that comes twice a day that photographers refer to as “the golden hour.” This is the short period of time in the morning and afternoon when the sun is very low in the sky and is casting long, warm shadows across the landscape. Catching the early golden hour usually means rising well before the sunrise to get set up in your shooting location. That’s why I prefer the afternoon period, when I can find my shot in good light and then just wait for the golden light to come my way.
