Blue Hour

Photographers often aim for the golden light of late afternoon or early morning, or the beautiful warm glow of sunrise and sunset. However, there is another magic time of day just before sunrise and after sunset, but after or before total darkness sets in. This time of day is known as the blue hour and the color tones are usually in the blues, pinks, and purples.

This photo is from a few days ago while Steve and I were staying at The Spouter Inn in Linconville Beach, Maine. We sat on a wall above the sand to watch the play of light on the bay.
