Snapshot Voyager is about my own personal photography journey. I am always looking to try something new, inquisitive as to how it works, and to the end results I might achieve.

The terror of a midday golden hour

The 'Golden Hour' is that time just around sunrise and sunset where the sun emits a soft warm glow, and almost any photo you shoot looks magic.  However, if you're in an Australian summer and the golden hour comes at mid-day, look out a bushfire isn't far away.  The thick smoke causes the sun to emit a similar type of light to sunset, and things do start to get a bit spooky.  Here you can see the effect of the smoke on the horizon from a large fire about 30 mins west of Mt Gambier.
