When the sun is low in the sky, it lights up the scene with beautiful warm colors. That’s why sunrise and sunset are called the “golden hours.”

But the light changes very quickly as the sun rises or sets. So you’ll need to get to your location in time to find some good compositions before the perfect light hits.

I love to shoot during sunrise. Early morning light is so beautiful.

I’d recommend going out with your iPhone 30 minutes before sunrise… just when the sky is beginning to look a bit pink.

Start taking photos just before the sun peeks above the horizon. Then keep shooting as the sun comes up.

Make the most of the scene by exploring different angles and compositions.

And take lots of photos to capture the stunning range of colors as the sun rises above the horizon.

When the sun gets higher in the sky, the light becomes brighter and the golden colors begin to fade.

But you can still capture some wonderful final shots if you find some trees.

Position the sun behind a tree, and capture the rays of light that appear through the branches.

If you’re not keen on getting up before sunrise, don’t worry! Sunset offers another chance to shoot amazing golden hour landscape photography.

Go out about one hour before sunset, and capture the spectacular colors as the sun goes down.

The closer the sun gets to the horizon, the more dramatic the colors become.

If you’re at the beach or a wide-open landscape, you’ll often get the best results when the sun is very low in the sky.

But if you’re shooting in a forest or around trees, it can be more beautiful when the sun is a little bit higher.
