There's a moment just before dawn and after sunset photographers call the blue hour. Don't ask me how or why it occurs but t's apparently a moment when the image is dominated by that certain quality of light that the film, or digital sensor, interprets as the color blue. It is that moment immediately before the morning sun takes full control and pushes the night aside for another day, or in the evening as the sun loses dominance and darkness assumes the plurality of the night. It is that precise time when it is neither night nor day. This is a shot taken at Horseshoe Beach, Florida, just as the sun was about to assert its presence after a long night and assume control over darkness. Dead Calm and quiet except for sounds of an awakening marsh. All blue.
