Blue Hour Beauty

By 1 June 2011Blog, Landscapes

This was taken quite a while back (check flickr for exact date) on one of the most beautiful blue hour that I had witnessed. This photo was sitting in my lightroom library unprocessed until recently when I revisited the folder looking for potential photographs to showcase on this website. Since this shoot, I have been on quite a few blue hour ‘hunts’ but I have not gotten any that came close to this beautiful shade of blue.

I guess this particular day was the start of my blue hour inspiration and my desire to witness such beauty again. I think the colour blue has a calming effect of the blue colour and it brings out the beauty of the subject. Guess I should take my portraits under a blue background.

I think it’s a pity that most people miss the blue hour everyday as it happens during 7.15pm-7.30pm where we are either on our way back home from work or having our dinner. So look up the sky once in a while and at times, you might just be amazed at the sight. 🙂

P.S I realised the photograph colour looks much darker on MAC so turn up the brightness level of the screen.
