B is for Blue Hour … have you ever heard of it? The sky magically turns royal blue a little bit before sunrise and a little bit after sunset. No filter needed, this fabulous blue color happens … it’s magical.
The first time I tried it I didn’t think I was doing things correctly because the sky certainly didn’t look different to me. I was so disappointed that I gave up and went inside. When I took a look at the photos on the memory card I was shocked to discover the camera saw the sky differently than my eyes.
I’ve seen some spectacular photos taken with city lights and interesting architecture, I live in the country and the most action you’re going to see here is the neighbor’s sheep walking … so trees it is.
