POTW theme: sunrise
As photographers, we are well aware of the golden hour, which extends from about half an hour before to an hour after sunrise and about an hour before to half an hour after sunset. These times are some of the best times to photograph as the light is warmer and the skies glows beautifully. During sunrises and sunsets, the sun sits at the horizon. This means sunlight must travel greater distance through the atmosphere before it reaches us. Because of this greater distance, more of the light is scattered as it interacts with molecules throughout its journey. The blue lights have mostly been scattered in the first fraction of its journey. By the time the light reaches us, the only color that can still be scattered are the oranges and the reds. So that is why sunrises and sunsets are reds.
