Can we talk about the "Golden Hour"?
7 months ago

In the 15 months since I have been taking this hobby seriously I have taken two vacations. Both involved mountainous areas. I have been making a concerted effort to be out with my camera around sunrise and sunset. I have been frustrated by not really finding golden lighting but rather shadows from the mounds and peaks.

It seemed that later in the day provided better lighting.

Can you refine my knowledge of this concept a bit?
