Some Blue Hour

Some Blue Hour

Blue Hour; It is a colloquial term and doesn’t have an official definition similar to dawn, dusk, and the 3 phases of twilight. Rather, it refers to a state of natural lighting that usually occurs at daybreak in the morning and during the last stages of twilight in the evening. (Wikipedia).

Above a Willett moved along the surf just as the sun began to cast some color.

The sky here had enough light to shoot, the beach and water still dark. Sunrise was behind me as these were taken.

And finally a Pelican of course.

I missed many Pelican photographs due to working with a tripod and slow speeds. I truly dislike shooting with my camera anchored to the ground. Maybe that’s why I don’t shoot many landscapes.

    1. Thank you. I had no real content for the article so as a last resort I went to Wikipedia.

      We have not missed a day in almost 3 years, usually 3-5 articles. Have used WordPress sites for 9+ years. I think I’m running on empty πŸ™‚

    2. The photos you selected were so apt… your post really made me reflect on the many early morning and early evening walks I’ve taken during which I’ve remarked on the beautiful shades and tones of blue.
      I have seen what an amazingly regular and consistent blogger you are, Ted – and I always enjoy your posts. I think you are far from ’empty’!

    3. Thanks for all your kind words πŸ™πŸ™. I hope to have a few more in me since I spent the AM out in a local marshland chasing critters.

      Again thanks for the support. There are plenty of days it’s needed πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚
