Fine art photographs of the beautiful “golden hour,” both sunrises and sunsets.
Ah, sunrises and sunsets. The landscape photographer’s crutch. And why not? They can be achingly beautiful. Catch a stunning enough sunset, and any picture will look award-worthy. But that’s not the hard part. The hard part is being prepared. First of all, you have to play a numbers game — you have to get out enough times that you cant’c some truly beautiful sunrises and sunsets. That means lots of changed dinner plans, and lots of nights waking up at 4 am. You know what parts of the landscape are suited to what types of light, so you’re not fumbling around indecisively when the “golden hour” comes. The phrase “luck favors the well-prepared” perhaps applies to landscape photography more-so than any other profession.
