The "blue hour" above the Gems­stock

October 28, 2020

The term "blue hour" refers to the colour change of the sky during twilight

This happens immediately after sunset and before nightfall. During the blue hour, the deep blue sky has about the same brightness as the artificial light of building and street lighting. These intense colours in the early night sky are very popular with photographers.
