The "golden hour" occurs approximately an hour after sunrise and an hour before sunset. The lack of direct sunlight eliminates the extreme contrast of darks and lights, and often casts a warm glow over the world. Some of the most dramatic and breathtaking landscape photography is achieved during that hour.

For a brief moment in time, even the urban decay of old downtown warehouses and boarded up windows becomes like a city paved with golden bricks.

Even this dreary garage door comes alive with warm, fiery tones set against a deep blue sky.

But the golden light fades quickly as one color blends into another and finally falls into darkness.
