Golden hour is a time of day known well by photographers when the sun casts a golden glow on the earth. It’s a magical time to photograph, and Paris is one of the world’s most beautiful places to shoot under such light. The Lutetian limestone façades reflect the light in such a way that you almost can’t take your eyes off the buildings. But as you stroll, you see more and more elements that catches your eye… a balcony of red geraniums under the spotlight of the evening or autumn leaves seemingly twinkling on their branches. And, of course, Paris’s landmarks are at their most beautiful at this time of day, whether it’s the imposing angles of the Eiffel Tower or the dome of Les Invalides.
