The Golden Hour of Travel

It is know as the golden hour, the moment just before sunrise and sunset, where the world takes on a magical glow and cloaks itself in a beautiful array of soft hues.

It has the power to transform and excite creating a visual spectacle that is every travellers delight. A new dawn on the adventures you are about to undertake, the excitement of endless wonder, or the musings of a day spent in a foreign land, reminiscing on all that came before and all that is still to be  experienced. There is nothing quite as invigorating, splendid or wonderful as experiencing these moments while travelling.

Below is a selection of stunning golden hour travel photography that we believe will get the traveller in all of you excited to take some snaps, and plan your next getaway.
