Couple of hours before the sunset is called the “golden hours”. As name suggests, everything looks much warmer (colour temperature-wise) and the soft warm glow just makes everything more pretty 😉
Also if it just rained, it’s a good time to go out and take some photos. The moisture on the road provides stronger contrast and the textures become more prominent in the photos. 🙂
Here is another shot taken just before the sunset, as you can see the sun is just going over the horizon.
