Deep Blue Gas

deep blue and the blue hour photography

Sometimes there’s not really a big reason for doing a photo – or there is but it’s not that glamourous, such as this one…. today we changed the time and I thought it was a certain hour, but it was instead still very early! Long story short, pitch black outside and I put on a tea and I was captured by the deep blue colour of the gas burning on the stove, quite striking in the early hours of the day where you can almost still find the blue hour.

In a nutshell, the blue hour is the period of twilight when the Sun is at a significant depth below the horizon and residual, indirect sunlight takes on a predominantly blue shade, which differs from the one visible during most of a clear day, which is caused by Rayleigh scattering.
