The Golden Hours

At different times & different parts of the year the intensity and quality of light varies. The hours just after and just before sunrise and sunset have the sunlight hitting everything at a low angle, giving better, softer more even lighting. The light often has a deep rich glow that warms colours, compared with the harsh contrasty light of the Australian midday.

The glow can be slightly different in the mornings (most likely to be truly golden) and sunset (more likely to have a stronger more orange hue)


This sunset is probably additionally coloured by a smoke haze.
