National Geographic recently asked the photographers in their ‘Your Shot’ online community for contributions of their best images capturing the golden hours of dawn and dusk.
The photos submitted came in from across the globe. From Prague to Iceland, Paris to India, each expresses the majesty and beauty of the first and last sunlight in their own unique way and culture.
They are currently exhibited at the ‘Golden Hour’ gallery.
