Blue Hour

This was taken at 7:45 which was during civil twilight. Most people put the camera away after the sun goes down, but there is a very special time called “blue hour” that gives great pictures.

Nikon D300 SS 20.0 sec, Exp. Manual, f/16, ISO 200, Focal length 15mm, lens 12.0-24.0mm f/4.0, matrix metering

    Thanks, I hope to find a better location in a couple of days. This was my first attempt.

    That came out great, Mary. I like the yellow of the house lights against the deep blue hour sky.

    Thanks Scott. I am enjoying my photography more each day. I can’t wait to get to a good location for night photography.
