Blue hour is when the sky has a deep blue hue with a cold temperature and saturated colours. It is also an ideal time for landscape photography because of the different shades of the sky and the colour saturation.
Golden Hour is when the sky goes from yellow to orange to red – those golden tones having a warm colour temperature, the lighting is soft, diffused with little contrast because the sun is low in the sky. This period of time does not produce strong shadows or harsh lighting and is an ideal time for landscape photography. At times you will get amazing sun beams 15 to 20 minutes before the sun sets.
