The Golden Hour Instagram Challenge was a chance to shoot during the best time of the day. A callback from Toby’s Time of Day & Quality of Light video. Great landscapes and amazing portraits were something special this week and came out great with that golden light.

You can find all the past challenges on the PRTV page along with next week’s Instagram challenge #PRTV_thankfulHere in the US it’s Turkey Time; family, food, friends, and the fall weather makes it a good time to reflect on what you’re thankful for in your life. So with the holidays in spirit we want you to think a bit out of the box and post what you’re thankful for this year.

To enter post your photos on Instagram before noon next Friday with the tags #PRTV and #PRTV_thankful.

Fantastic shot – love that you choose to capture these horses backlit – the warm sun perfectly outlines their bodies, catching all that hair.

Toby’s Honorable Mentions:

178/366 Time slowly goes away, but its not about the amount of time rather the qaulity of the time #prtv_goldenhr

The warm tones, the sharp glass – it is all a lovely contrast and capture.

Love the leading line of the waves, the misty/haze of the distance and everything is bathed in warm light.

Aidan’s shot focuses on quality of light with a nice golden bokeh from the light hitting the leaves in the background. The soft lighting makes the glass exposed well and focuses on the sand grains falling. Nice shot!

Roy’s Honorable Mentions:

Golden hour is the best chance to shoot portraits in soft warm light without faking the shot or using a lightsource. Shooting under a overhang made for a nice touch as you can control the light and it give the background a nice repeating pattern.

Joe’s landscape nails golden hour on it’s head freezing the action with a nice warm glow to the shot. Cutting off the sun partially and catching the wave coming in made for nice touches to a great photo.

 Bald Eagle in Yellowstone - does it get more American than that? The national symbol in the first national park! This was a few days ago - today we saw a golden eagle and my favorite - Pronghorn Antelope - America's fastest land animal! It's been a good week ANDDDDD I get to do it all again with the 2nd tour. Yes I am lucky, yes I am living the dream and YES I worked hard to get here. I am working on a video about hustle, fear and dreams. By working I mean I have thought about it. And yes I like who I am and @nsharpes made me order TWO grande Margaritas - so that might be contributing to this monologue that I just subjected you all too. But honestly - you are cool! ~ Captured with the #Sony #A7RII and Canon 70-200 using MC11 adapter
 I said it before, I will say it again - Yellowstone NP in winter is a magical place - for most of the day we were the only ones in sight - in all directions!! It is an amazing experience and I spend most of the day grinning at the beauty, the uniqueness and my luck at being able to experience it all. I remember driving through Hayden Valley on my Summer 1994 road trip- Obviously the place stuck with me and to see it now, all covered in snow... #FNFantastic //And now The Fear by Lily Allen is stuck in my head. ~  Captured with the #Sony #a7rII and Canon 70-200
