Light is your friend and may be your enemy in photography. Everyone knows that the best light is at the start and end of the day. The so-called golden hour.
It repays to do research as to exactly when this will be, as the sun sets quickly near the equator. There are different apps for smartphones you can use to be on the safe side.
But not only sunsets but as well early mornings are a perfect time to photograph a location. Most probably there aren't so many people in the morning shots compared to evenings shots when everyone is still around.
