The Blue Hour

There's a moment just before dawn and after sunset I call the blue hour. Don't ask me how or why it occurs but it's a moment when the image becomes dominated by a quality of light the film, or digital sensor, interprets as the color blue. It's 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 plurality for the night. It's that precise time when it is neither night nor day. This shot was taken at Horseshoe Beach, Florida, just as the sun was struggling to assert its presence after a long night of darkness. Dead Calm and quiet except for sounds of an awakening marsh. All blue.
