After Dark

Blue Hour Rundle

In this image that I titled “Blue Hour Rundle”, because it was taken in what’s know as the “Blue Hour”. It is the twilight period after sunset or before sunrise. The cool light after sunset has made everything look blue. A long exposure has smoothed the water giving me a nicer reflection.

Nikon D300s, 24-70mm f/2.8 @ f/8.0, 20 seconds, ISO 200, WB 10000k

Do you pack up when the sun goes down? Try staying a little later and see what happens to the light.

In the best light…
