2018 Golden Hour Challenge

We’ll have to meet up.


Douglas Taylor

Are we going to get a leaderboard so we can see who’s where instead of scrolling through?


Ah, right, gotcha, I thought it was on a points system with the votes accumulated on your entries :+1:

Sounds like a plan

I’m no photographer but I thought I’d give it a go. This was taken in North Shropshire looking over the fields in the general direction of Market Drayton, at 7:36am on Sun 7 Oct 2018 with my Mavic 2 Zoom on Auto with no filters.

As a BTW, I used the PolarPro app to tell me when the Golden Hour was for that morning and it said 7:24am for 45 mins. I got up at 6:45am thinking I’d be in good time for it and peeked out the curtains expecting it to still be fairly darkish.Well begger me sideways there was a fab, blood-red sunrise already in progress. By the time I was dressed and got the Mavic ready I’d missed the best of it. Grrr.


Here’s my entry…Reculver Towers in Kent at Sunrise a few days ago:)


This was taken on the 5th Oct at around 6:30 in the morning. Just a perfect misty, autumn morning! Shot in the Vale of Glamorgan, near Cowbridge.

I wanted a dreamy, floaty feel for the video so I switched to ATTI mode for the flight. Not the smartest decision I’ve made but the effect works!
Edited to 30 seconds for the competition but a longer version is in the video section.


amazing shot…well done
