Photographer's Note

We had a chat with Paul about the blue hour phenomenon recently. Searching for answers, I found an interesting article on physical basis of twilight in Wikipedia:
I don’t think this article is simple and clear enough for me, but it was certainly very educational to read it. From what it said, it seems we are more correct to call the blue hour a “nautical dusk”. I thought it is very appropriate especially for this photo since it was taken at the coast.

The photo presents again the pier in Saltburn-by-the-Sea. I took several photos there before and after the blue hour. It seems that when the sky had the blue hour color, the sea was slightly too dark already. Hence here a photo where the sea was at the blue hour even though the sky, which I cropped, was slightly brighter.

I wanted to fill in the exposure time of 15 seconds but TrekEarth does allow me to do it anymore.
