Spectacular Shots of Golden Hour Across the World

The golden hour in photography refers to the first and last hour of sunlight during the day, when the light is just perfect for a spectacular shot. During the golden hour, the warm colors of the sun enhance the colors of any scene. In particular, they can cast beautiful, glowing shades of gold and blue onto expansive landscapes and cityscapes.
