A forum to post any lighthouse pictures you'd like others to see. Feel free to talk about lighthouse photography. Lighthouse-related photos (such as LSS and lenses) are also welcome.

I haven't had time to post much lately... and I've had less time to get out to shoot. That said, I thought I'd start a thread devoted to images from the "blue" hour.

This shot of the Algoma, Wisconsin lighthouse was shot before dawn a couple of years ago during the blue hour...

Here's one from the blue hour... I shot this one while boarding the Keweenaw Star for the WILD cruise last year.

Mike

I thought the BLUE Heron was very creative on Barry's part.

If it was a "blue" heron shot during the blue hour I'd be more impressed, Barry...

Meanwhile, from the left coast, Pigeon Point and Prisoner's Rock.

Now just wait a minute ...

First, if I plead ignorance, I'm sure Ill get no argument :wink: Second, why wouldnt I think "blue hour" referred to a color rather than a time ...Third, this is just one more example of "photographers" versus "someone who takes pictures"... and lastly, while every other photo in this thread is extraordinary, Mike, that pano shot of yours just grabbed me ... how great it is ...

So, two more things ... one, maybe you'll allow this as an entry to the topic ...

<img src="http://img68.imageshack.us/img68/8879/blue9bl.jpg">

... and two, with Gary's past explanations of turning daytime into nighttime, I was wondering what time of day or night many of these shots were acutally taken?

Thanks Barry, I'm glad you like that one. I overlooked it for years after I took it, I only recently re-discovered it. It was taken after sunset, probably around 45-60 minutes after. And since I was standing next to Gary when he tooh the South Haven shot he posted, I can say that the sun was barely set when he took that one. That's why there's no appreciable motion blur on the barge.

As for your earlier post, I thought you were making a joke with the blue heron thing, I actually groaned out loud. :D Brother, you post whatever you want as far as I'm concerned.

Great shots people, especialy like that pano of yours Hersh and the bridge. We don't get blue effects like that down here on the bottom of the planet.
