Yes, you can get a tan when the sun is low in the sky. But it will take longer because the most effective tanning rays are those from the upper end of the spectrum, and the atmosphere scatters them more readily than light from the lower end of the spectrum. That means that when the sun is lower in the sky, fewer of the tanning rays will reach the skin of the sunbather.
