Whenever you see a sunset, what do you think about? Do you feel sad that a lovely day is ending? Or perhaps you’re excited at the prospects that nighttime would bring? Maybe you stare at the rays of gold, orange, and purple, reminiscing carefree childhood days?
No matter the reason, we all long for that beautiful splash of color in the sky known as sunsets. These enigmatic showcases of hues happen every day, but people can’t seem to get enough of it. They take endless photographs, each one different than the next. Or they gather in parks or by windows, as if hoping for the last few rays of the sun to touch their skin.
Experienced artists and photographers will tell you that sunset – that time usually between 5PM to 6PM – is called the ‘Golden Hour’. That’s because it’s the perfect moment to take a shot, whether it’s for a portrait or a landscape. This is due to the setting sun casting a golden overcast on everything. It will naturally add a glow to your skin, or make scenic landscapes look more inviting.
If you haven’t tried taking pictures during a sunset, do so! You will definitely see the difference. For now, get in the right mood (and mindset) with these charming free sunset photos.
P.S. Learn how you can take these types of pictures on your own!
