‘Dusk to Dark’

October to March
7.00pm to 10.00pm

From around mid-spring to mid-autumn, daylight hours allow for a combination of twilight and night photography. In mid-summer, the sun sets as late as 8.50pm. The atmospheric light of ‘golden-hour’ and ‘blue-hour’ is what you’ll experience during this time.

‘Golden hour occurs in the lead up to sunset, as the sun approaches the horizon; it’s a time that the intensity of sunlight is reduced and when remaining natural light is a golden hue.
* ‘Blue hour’ occurs immediately after sunset when the sun is just below the horizon; a residual and indirect light produces a blue hue and visibility of the stars commences.
