, , 1 Comment

The Blue hour is a great time to go out shooting – its the period in the morning and in the evening when the sun is rising / setting and can make for dramatic shots.

The blue hour comes from the 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.

In today’s post we’re going to take a look at 25 stunning captures taken by talented photographers during the blue hour …
