Golden Hour

I just learned recently (more than a month ago) that taking photos is great in the so called "golden hour". I was in the Philippines when I tried to take the early morning shot while doing my walk at the beach.


Fast forward two days ago I waited our very own golden hour here in Michigan and took this shot. Here is my small peach tree covered with blossoms.

That first is a nice mood shot. I really like it and the flowers in the second one make a cheerful statement

Very nice! Yes, that golden hour (either one, after dawn or before sunset), on a clear day, definitely gives the best results.

My first time to hear blue hours that would be more exciting to capture. ^_^

Beautiful images. I manage some early morning shooting, but I'm usually in and can not see the sun set! Bummer.
