I was just over visiting Between Naps on the Porch reading a fascinating post about the "Blue Hour," when I remembered some pictures I took on our trip to Chicago in March.
LBeau and I had just finished dinner and were walking along the river behind our hotel, when I noticed that the sky had a certain magical glow to it. It wasn't daylight, but it wasn't quite dark either, and somehow I knew I needed to take a picture. Unfortunately, I had left my camera in the room. Afraid I would completely miss the show, I quickly snapped a couple of pictures with my iPhone.
Although the resolution isn't the sharpest, you can see the sky taking on a beautiful shade of blue.
Hoping to still capture the magic, I hurried back to the room for my camera. I'm afraid I missed the high point of the "Blue Hour," but I think this shot still gives you an idea of what it's all about.
To read more about the "Blue Hour," head on over to Between Naps on the Porch, where Susan is hosting Metamorphosis Monday. And to find out when the "Blue Hour" is in your neck of the woods, just click HERE to visit the "Blue Hour" website.
After posting this last night, I started remembering some other "Blue Hour" photos that I accidently captured. These are from our trip to London last November.
Now that I know what to look for, perhaps there will be more of these beautiful skies in my future. And with all of this blue going on, how could I not link up with Smiling Sally for Blue Monday.
