The lighting at sunrise and sunset is often referred to as the ‘golden hour’ by photographers. There is more contrast in the shadows, a soft orange-ish glow to the light, and there is nothing like watching the sun’s tendrils spill over the earth as it emerges or disappears from the land. While I have never been a morning person, I love being out for sunrise in particular, knowing that I’m in for a whole day of light. Sunset is beautiful as well of course, but usually means I’m about to be done taking my pictures for the day.
