236th Show & Tell Competition: Twilight

Post Sat May 19, 2012 3:25 pm


Hello Everyone,
Twilight, a magical time of day, and my favorite time of day for photography.

Here is a definition from wikipedia: "Twilight is the time between dawn and sunrise or between sunset and dusk, during which sunlight scattering in the upper atmosphere illuminates the lower atmosphere, and the surface of the earth is neither completely lit nor completely dark. The sun itself is not directly visible because it is below the horizon. Owing to the distinctive quality of the ambient light at this time, twilight has long been popular with photographers and painters, who refer to it as the "blue hour", after the French expression l'heure bleue. Twilight is technically defined as the periods between sunset and sunrise during which there is natural light provided by the upper atmosphere, which receives direct sunlight and scatters part of it towards the earth's surface."

Below a few examples. Have fun.

Best Wishes,

Walter
