Robin Black's photograph of The Wave Formation is a perfect example of a scene that works well when it's photographed under mid-day light. She sent this photograph to the Non-Golden Hour Assignment which is open for submissions until August 14th. She describes the shot, "Not all outdoor subjects are at their best during the golden hour, and the iconic Wave formation is one of them. Most of the formation is in shade until the sun is almost directly over overhead. Once the formation is fully lit up, some of the side passages catch beautiful reflected light, as you see here, and glow with intense oranges, reds and yellows."
