Golden Hour: Meet the Finalists

In photography, The Golden Hour, is a period short after sunrise or before sunset during which the sunlight is warmer and redder. It’s also called the magical hour and magic is what this post is about.

Some weeks ago we ran The Golden Hour Mission on Foap. Over 23 000 photos taken by almost 6000 Foapers from all over the world were submitted to the Mission. So many amazing shots and beautiful colors. Nature’s palette is unbelievably gorgeous.

After going through all the images, we have selected 20 Finalists.Taken by Foapers with different styles, different cameras and in different parts of the world, theses photos still have a lot in common: the Golden hour colors.

We hope you will enjoy. To all of you who made to this list: A huge congratulations! It’s been a hard fight and you deserve a ton of respect. To all of you who joined: Thank you! You are part of one of the most amazing Golden Hour photo missions ever!

The Winner will be announced in the coming days. Stay tuned!
