Blue Hour Photography

Photos from the Blue Hour

I love taking photos during the blue hour. Many landscape photographers focus on the golden hours and while I love those, I love the blue hours just as much; if not more. The blue hour often brings a scene to an almost magical level because the colours can make for an amazing visual display. While the golden hour can be quite dramatic as the day transitions the blue hour can be much subtler with brilliant displays of blue and magenta across the skies. I find the blue hours very tranquil and love the peace while taking photos as the world is settling for the night, or thinking about stirring for the day.
