The “magic hours” of early morning or late evening are often preferred by landscape photographers. Between these times many pack their cameras away until the next round. But, once the sun is up, and Infrared radiation — or “light beyond the visible” — reflects from surfaces, one may switch to an Infrared-converted camera and shoot all day!
Infrared photography loves sun or bright overcast light. The effect is intriguing with deciduous leaves and grasses that appear white (while conifers remain dark), dramatic skies, and other surreal effects. The glow of backlighting is particularly effective and captivating.
