Bridge To Nowhere Sunset In San Diego

Just Before Blue Hour In San Diego

        Very recently I found out about the blue hour and blue hour photography in general. Blue hour happens twice a day just after sunset and just before sunrise. About ten minutes after I took this shot, the entire sky was a darker blue than the top of the photo above, and that is when the blue hour occurs. I wasn’t actually trying to capture a blue hour shot, I just thought this sunset had a chalk drawing look to it. The purples seemed to me to be hanging artificially in the sky alongside the clouds, and to me they looked like marks from a giant purple stick of chalk.
