Throughout the day the colour temperature of sunlight differs because of its position in the sky and the surrounding atmospheric conditions. During early morning and late in the evening the sunlight takes on a warm golden hue.

Calm seas allow more light to pass through whilst a choppy sea reflects light. The position of the sun in the sky and the time of day also have an effect on the amount of light entering the water.
