The Golden Hour… Underwater
“The last 30 minutes of sunlight isn’t just beautiful above water … it is insanely beautiful BELOW the sea as well. It’s taken me awhile to consider shooting underwater during sunset. Maybe it’s because I would rather be surfing, but recently, I have fallen in love with golden hour, underwater.
Taken on a GoPro Hero 3. This was one of the first photos I took underwater at sunset. The waves were inconsistent but the weather was gorgeous, so for this wave I held the GoPro steady the first set wave passed over me, and thanks to the low light + warm rays of the setting sun, it created this effect. Photoshop-free”
“Within the last 30 minutes of sunset … no need for camera filters when the warm sun glows like this on her skin! Open your eyes next time you duck dive at sunset. The light rays are incredible, and I was finally able to capture it with this photograph.” -Sarah Lee
