Greg A. Hartford, photographer, author, publisherOne of the most rewarding, and often challenging, times to do landscape photography is during the twilight period before sunrise or after sunset. Because the landscape where we stand at during this time is actually in shadow, the colors shift toward the blues. Because of the lower light level, a tripod is recommended and longer shutter speeds will be required. The most attractive time for may people is what is affectionately referred to as the "golden hour." This is the approximate 0ne-hour period immediately after sunrise and the hour just before sunset when the sun is low on the horizon which creates higher contrast scenes especially when at right-angles to the sun. The light also appears to shift warmer toward the yellow, oranges, and reds largely due to the fact that the light is now passing through much more atmosphere, especially that which exists closer to the ground which acts like a filter of sorts.
