30 Brilliant iPhone Photos of the Golden Hour

Thank you to everyone who entered images in our weekly iPhone photography contest. This week’s theme was “The Golden Hour” and we had a wonderful selection of light-drenched images to choose from. These 30 winning photos took advantage of the low angle of the sun at dawn or dusk to create outstanding iPhone photos. Thanks to everyone who entered for their hard work and impressive images.

How To Enter The Next Photo Contest

Journies start with a single step. Some journies are long and include travel to far-away lands, while others begin and end in our own back yards.

What makes iPhone photos of journies special?  They tell stories about discovery, exploration, and new views of the world.
