Glowing During the Blue Hour…

Themed 365 Project


Wow, it’s been a long time in between postings and only managed to comment on a few of your blogs over the last month or so. Hopefully that will change in the next 2 weeks as softball is coming to an end for the high school and rec. season. Allstars begins after that but the games are on only a few weekends over the summer. I hope to contribute more as that time comes!

Anyway, I managed to get a few shots last night during our drive to the beach. This is St. Catherines Chapel in Spring Lake, New Jersey. Many of my followers will remember this scene from 1 or 2 previous postings, but I was never able to get it at this time of day, the blue hour. With the exception of lack of clouds I really like this shot. A 5 shot hdr to show some details in the shadows and add some depth. Finished off in Topaz for some finer details on the chapel.

Hope to comment and post soon and enjoy the summer.

  1. A beautiful chapel! I’m glad they installed spotlights for night/dusk photographers. I’ve not heard dusk called the blue hour before but I can see why.

  2. Beautifully done! Really like the contrast between the golden glow on the church and the twilight blue of the sky.

  3. Love the moment of light that you captured but I will echo Gisele and mention that the figurines are a bit distracting especially since we are seeing the back side of them.
