EOS 5 d Mark II with EF 17-40 f/4 L. 15 seconds at f/11, ISO 800./PPThere is a period of time each day, just before sunrise and just after sunset, when the Sun is below the horizon, then the light is known as “sweet light.” This period is known as “The Blue Hour.” This is a period of time every morning and every evening when full daylight nor complete darkness. The light is almost Ethereal, with a soft blue glow bathing the scene. The blue hour happens in parallel with the golden hour, making the beginning and end of the day, exceptional for photography, providing two very different types of light within a single period of time./PPThe Blue Hour is a prime time for landscape photography. Topics that have their own lighting, such as buildings city or lighthouses, tend to look especially good, as the yellow glow of their lights cuts through the blue.
