As soon as you begin your journey as a landscape photographer you will start to read and hear about the importance of taking images at golden hour. It can certainly help us capture some wonderful images, but is it the only time of day we can capture our best photographs? That’s what I discuss in my latest YouTube video which you can watch here.

On my recent travels around North Scotland I spotted a wonderful expanse of water late one evening. The scenery was beautiful but I wanted to find and compose an image which captured the feel of the location and evening. Although I had some time until sunset the sun was moving quite quickly to hide behind a mountain, when that happened the opportunity to capture an image would be gone. Watch how I get on racing against the sunset here.
