Golden Hour

As photographers we are always looking for the perfect conditions to create that stunning shot.  The Golden Hour is one such moment, and refers to the hour at sunrise and sunset that yields the most flattering and beautiful light.  When planning a shoot it is to the photographers advantage to know when the Golden Hour will occur, and with the large amounts of information on the internet that is not too difficult a task.

My wife came across a site designed to give this information plus much more. is a very interesting site that gives a visual representation of the Golden Hour based on your geographic location.  The neat aspect of this site is the ability to look at any date and maintain that visual representation both in terms of the elevation and azimuth of the sun and the details in regard to sunrise and sunset.  A very neat tool for planning photo shoots any time of year.
