About This Group

Welcome to BLUE HOUR
a wonderful collection of photos taken in the glorious sixty minutes before sunrise and after sunset!

Blue Hour accepts color photography only. Photos must be taken in the one hour before sunrise and the one hour after sunset. The sun cannot be seen in the photograph. It must be clearly below the horizon, not hidden behind clouds or objects in the foreground. A portion of sky must be visible, as “Blue Hour” refers to the time of day when the twilight takes on a strong blue hue.

Landscape photos taken outside the Blue Hour should be submitted instead to our companion group, HORIZONS.
