The National Geographic Golden Hour photo series focuses on images captured in the first and last hour of sunlight during the day. Also known as the magic hour, this waning light often casts a mesmerizing spell over the scenes before a person. In a way, it can be considered a photographer's dream light. Almost anything looks amazing in it. My Modern Met elaborates, "In particular, they can cast beautiful, glowing shades of gold and blue onto expansive landscapes and cityscapes."

Part of its Your Shot community, the National Geographic Golden Hour photo series showcases the work of photographers Mathieu Dupuis, Michael Bennett, Joel Brady-Power, Raymond Choo, Jaromir Chalabala, Nan Li Toh, Mark Donougher and more. It showcases images captured around the world from Paris to Kenya.
