Photographers love the ‘golden hour’ whether it’s in the morning or evening.
I’m a morning person, so I’d expected to have more sunrise shots in my archive. Surprisingly, that’s not the case.
What I did find though, is that my morning shots tend to have fewer traces of humanity in them — whether people themselves, or our planet-covering artifacts.
