Blue Hour

Good things come to those who wait, and it is after the sun has disappeared beneath the horizon and most folks have packed up and have started heading home that the fun really starts and the magic begins. The twilight afterglow. The blue hour, that ephemeral sliver of time when the sky, the land and the sea are awash in surreal magentas and pinks that gradually fade to purples and blues.

This shot was taken on the west coast of India, on a rocky outcrop at the edge of the Arabian Sea, with my favourite lens, the manual Nikon 28 mm f/2.8 AI-s.

I look forward to comments on this photograph from the FStoppers community.

Posting another picture here, this one taken during the morning blue hour, of fishermen returning to port at dawn. This was also taken with a Nikon 28 mm f/2.8 AI-s manual lens on the west coast of India at the edge of the Aghnashini estuary where it meets the Arabian Sea. It was a cloudless sky, lacking that extra drama, but the morning colours made up for it.

I welcome comments on this photograph from the FStoppers community.
