The Blue Hour

The blue hour comes from a French expression, l'heure bleue, which refers to the period of twilight each morning and evening where there is neither full daylight nor complete darkness. The time is considered special because of the quality of the light at this time of day.

These are My very first attempts at an Evening Blue Hour, I was amazed what ended
up in the Photo.....

I know the very first photo is the 1st one I took, that was taken in the East
the lighter sunset ones of course were set in the west ~
I took 3 sets, all about 10 minutes apart
[at one point, the clouds were pink ~ just Beautiful]

I plan on setting my alarm this week to catch the early morning B.H. but that means
a 5:00am wake up call

I Promise to share, When I do
will give you the correct times for Your Area



  1. Wow! Your photos are amazing! I just read about the blue hour too, and I had never heard of it. I will have to try it myself (thought I don't think I can make the 5am wake up call!). Great job!!

  2. I TOTALLY enjoyed them! That was interesting too! I never knew about the blue hour. That picture through the lace curtian...gorgeous!

  3. I had Never heard of "The Blue Hour" until I was checking out Vintage Silver Sunday post.... there I found a post about it that led to "Between Naps on the Porch" there I saw the Beautiful & Amazing shades of Deep Blue & Checked it out ~ I set my cell phone timer for My Hour & was So Pleased how My First Photos came out ~ Believe it or Not, I Did get up this morning at 5:00 am (will show the morning pics another post) but I was back in bed by 6 am ........ EnJoy
