03 Sunset – The Wandering Lens Community Collection

Monthly Collection 03 Sunset

Sunset, that time of day we’re drawn to photograph as the light turns from a golden glow to a soft dusk.

The inspiring conditions lend themselves to capturing epic landscapes as the last rays of sunlight grace the peaks of mountains, as water glistens upon sandy shores and as subjects are illuminated in new ways.

Working with light is both a form of creative expression and an understanding of the natural world. 

From Paris to Hiroshima and Squamish to Sydney, this month the collection is filled with sunset goodness from all corners of the world. I’ve loved seeing the submissions of photographers within The Wandering Lens community over the past three months and am so happy to see this project develop each month.

If you’re keen to learn more about photographing sunset and golden hour, take a peek at this short guide here. For now though, browse through this collection of work from talented photographers.

Alongside each image is a link to the photographer’s portfolio or social media account so have a little peek at their work. I’d love for these monthly collections to grow as a place where photographers can showcase their work and connect with one another!

Okay, let’s take a look at the collection this month…

Thank you so much to everyone who submitted an image for the monthly theme!

There will be a new theme announced next week via Instagram @the_wanderinglens or via the newsletter if you’ve signed up. If you’re not already receiving emails from me (not spammy, just once every few weeks or so!) you can do so here. They’re filled with photo tips, career advice and opportunities like this to submit your work to be published on this site which reaches over 125,000 readers.

See you next month!
