’Golden hour’ — the period shortly after sunrise or before sunset, when contrast seem to be reduced, and light becomes softer and warmer. With this online calculator you can find out the exact time of the ’golden’ hour in your current location.
The ’blue hour’ lasts for about 20-30 minutes during dawn each morning and dusk each evening, when the light becomes predominantly blue. On this site you can find out when this magical time will come.
