Join the #GoldenHour Photography Challenge

Photography is the art of being at the right place at the right time.

Twice a day a magical hour happens. Right after dawn, and right before twilight, sunlight kisses everything with rich, warm, golden light. Everything beautiful looks even more radiant in this special glow. Photographers call this the golden hour.
