Weekly Photo Challenge: The Golden Hour

I’m a big fan of the “Golden Hour”- but the hour near sunset more so than sunrise. The light can be magical and create an almost live painting. If the light is really good, no need to worry at all about the shutter speed, aperture and ISO.

The picture below was taken without camera adjustments in Amsterdam. It was less than an hour before sunset with great light and colour.

Just to prove that it really is about the light, here’s a couple of more pictures, both taken with an iPhone 4s, (Niagara Falls and Jamaica at sunset). Simple pictures with great, natural light taken during the “golden hour”.
