One of the thing that I took for granted, as a photographer in New Zealand, was how long our sunsets are here. Much of the world only has very short sunset compared to New Zealand. Photographers shooting weddings down here have the luxury of long golden hours. Climb to the top of a mountain and it gets even better. As you head further South down the country the sunsets get later and longer too. There is a significant difference in the time the sun sets between Auckland, Wellington, and Queenstown especially in Summer.
Sunset light is not just about epic sunset photos, the light is just so much easier to work with at that time. We took this frame of Lydia and Alexandre half way up a volcano at sunset.
