This is my contribution to Scott’s Assignment 19: Blue Hour. I discovered Blue Hour by accident a while back and didn’t know what it was at the time and thought something was wrong with my camera. The blue hour comes from the French expression l’heure bleue, which refers to the period of twilight each morning and evening where there is neither full daylight nor complete darkness. The time is considered special because of the quality of light at this time of day.

Blue hour… what a lovely description, I know exactly what it is! great photo, I really like the balance between the house lights and the car lights.
Thanks Lois, it seems a lot darker outside than in the photo and I’m glad that the owner of the house turned on the porch light that night.
A beautiful blue color, and a very nice and inviting home.
Thanks Giiid, I didn’t go very far to photograph the blue hour. I’m just glad that the neighbors didn’t call the cop on me since I was out there in the dark, with the camera on top of it.
Perhaps we should wear a sign or T shirt with a print saying something like “Blogger at work”, when we are out in the dark. 🙂
Giiid, sounds like a great idea. 🙂
Lovely – and I especially like the twinkling lights on the porch.
That is a pretty kind of blue. Lovely photo. 🙂
That’s a fine job of evoking those “blue hour” feelings.
Thanks Gerry, I noticed that the night sky was a lot deeper in color, and lighter shade of blue in photo. I hope the assignment didn’t give anyone the blue. 🙂
Nice capture of the blue hour, Nye 🙂
Thanks Truels. 🙂
