Blue hour…!

20121129-202948.jpg

As the name says…everything is blue in this hour…and as if on purpose…all will be still …quiet…
Blue hour happens each morning…each evening…when there is no full daylight nor is there complete darkness..it is known for that special quality of light..
#bluehour is a French expression…L’heure bleue…
May be because of the mystique associated with that blue light…world over…there are hotels…theatres…bars..perfumes…songs…named after it…
Earlier..in England…bars used to be closed for blue hour…which was 3.30 after lunch time…to 6.30 in the evening….
In fact …I saw a sticker in a shop ..in Glasgow ….which said not in blue hour …made me wonder what exactly was this blue hour…
They say…pictures taken during blue hour…come out beautifully…and if they are taken in an area where it has snowed..it can be just a perfect shot…
I took this picture…around 7 in evening…at isle of Skye in Scotland …me an amateur photographer…it may not be perfect…but I feel quite nice about this shot which I took in the blue hour…it all looked surreal then…
