Exodus 26:31

“You shall make a veil of blue and purple and scarlet material and fine twisted linen; it shall be made with cherubim, the work of a skillful workman.”

I do not mean to make light of the Book for I find the changing tapestries wrought by the setting sun fitting to carry any faith. How can man compete? And the Exodus? It is a comfort to know as the color leaves me behind it is chasing the sun around the world.

It’s Blue Hour somewhere, even as I type.

These were shot the same night I shot “Invictus”*, February 18th and I have posted them sequentially. Those crazy squiggles of the bottom shot were the last shot. The westward procession was breathtaking. And I’m still here.

  1. Question for other bloggers. Quite a bit of detail is missing. Yes, it’s a reduced .jpg but, my, the images are lossy whereas edges are sharp in the originals. Does anyone use a photo host for their work then insert into the post? Thanks!

    1. I metered and set myself up for the shots. It’s not a point and shoot snapshot so much as a planned shot achieved with knowledge, after years of observation, about how weather does in my area.

      (I pretty much know when the spectacular sunsets will be and the digital point and shoot pilgrims will pry that information out of my cold dead hands. 😉 )

      I think you may be a lone shooter too. I have one friend I’ll go out with anytime. If I say something tasty I’ll say, “Hey.” and point with my finger towards what I’m looking at. He always sees it slightly different than I do. No copying, just being and seeing.

      No idea why I’m so chatty today..too much caffeine and darned if it’s snowing again.

      1. Snow! Oh no!
        I’ve been a lone shooter for a while. When I was learning I went out with a class, but that was limiting once I knew what I was doing. I had a good partner for outtings but she somehow dropped all contact. It was too bad; we had some good shoots together.

        Have a great day.

  2. ….as a child the ‘blue hour’ was the one which called us all back from sledding so we’d make it home in time for dinner. Blue snow always takes me back to then. Thank you for these lovely images of your special part of the world.

  3. Beautiful post! I knew of the “golden hour”, but hadn’t heard about the “blue hour”, I had to look it up. Both are special moments to capture. Those photos of yours here are absolutely amazing!

    1. Thank you for your kind words. Next time you are out shooting the sunset, linger and see what you can see. Blue hour is challenging for camera phones..the light is too low, things get out of focus and grainy but you can fiddle with settings on other camera types.
