Many people think that you get punchy colour in bright light, but this is not true. The quality of light will affect colour and landscape photographers are told to use the golden hours around sunrise and sunset when the temperature of the light is warmer, i.e redder. However a good time to bring out colour saturation is when light is diffuse such as a hazy/overcast day. In these conditions the light from the sun is softened from a single point into a wide light source which really brings out subtle shades of colour, especially greens and browns
