The term golden hour photography or magic hour is a period of time shortly after sunrise or before sunset when the daylight is soft and even with a warmer colour temperature.

During this time the sun is lower in the sky and the light produced is softer and better diffused and is a lot better when compared to shooting in the harsh midday sun.

It is an ideal time to capture great images like this one from our Diploma of Digital Photography student Iain Hay.  Great job Iain and thanks for letting us share your image.
