This week's Postcards from Aminus3 comes to you from the blue hour. That magical twilight time just after the lingering sunset, right before the darkness of night.
But what makes that blue sky effect? Read on to learn more!
The camera does not interpret light like our brains. The camera sees light strictly by its frequency. Understanding the temperature of light can open a whole new set of photographic opportunities.
Just after dusk when the reds have left the sky and yet the sky still has some residual light is called the Blue Hour by photographers. In this Blue Hour photo of Yosemite Valley you can see a couple of the first visible stars of the night if you look closely.
Blue hour at the Manchester Street Power Station in Providence, Rhode Island, as night approaches.

Blue hour at the boat lift Strépy-Thieux. This Belgian structure transports boats between two canals by lifting them up 73.15m (240ft) making it one of the tallest boat lifts in the world.
