Default Blue Mountain Hour

With high mountains all around and winter in progress, we don't get a lot of classic blue hours. This morning, however, was special. Mothership coming into Mount Shasta. My entry, taken from the roof. Kx ,Tamron 18-250.

Thanks Keltech. Loved your ski park shot. I have tired many time to shoot ours in the dark with no real success. A lot of work went into yours.

Wow, "Independence Day" in real life. Scary and beautiful at the same time.

Thanks for sharing!

In spite of all the early concern about this topic it has opened up some new vistas to us. I wonder if some of these would have even been attempted if not for the new awareness of the blue hour?

Here is my entry. Taken from the Vermont side of the Connecticut River valley, looking toward Mount Moosilauke, in New Hampshire's White Mountains. (And indeed, on that evening, it was truly a white mountain!) I wish the almost-full moon had been lower in the sky, but you have to take what you get -- the moon rose early, and we were nowhere near the blue hour when the moon was closer to the horizon.

Wow..some great photos this month!..That cloud formation is amazing!..I agree with others..I am so glad this theme came up because it has awaken a time of day I have never have thought about before.Now when this "blue" hour comes along I will always be on the look out to try and find a shot in it.Funny how before I would always think .."well..thats it for photos today".Thanks! Here's my entry..I was coming thru the National Park today hoping that almost full moon would show it's face and give me a nice snowy spruce and blue sky with moon chance..but alas..wouldn't you know it..I was an off by an hour..lol.So this is all I could come up with for now...from the window of my work truck..it was too cold to venture out..-39 windchill!(I would have been blue,too)

Lots of snow in Ohio, but not much at one time. Snow was still falling when I took this one. DL with Kit lens with about a 4 second time exposure at f22
