Lilacs in the Blue Hour....

Last Evening....I played a little with the BLUE HOUR...
that time of evening when the atmosphere appears to be blue...
It is a magical time.
In our area it started around 9:20 pm....
I took 5 photos...at approx. 5-7 minute intervals....
amazing to see the rich BLUE color in the sky...
Hope you enjoy these...











Pretty cool...
and Pretty BLUE Huh?
Oh!...those summer Ni.....hights !!!!!

  22. Lovely! Love how you captured the approaching darkness. In FL we have crepe myrtles blooming right now . . they remind me so of lilacs but they don't have the nice fragrance.
