Winter Blue Hour. Rooftop Blues

    Newer Older

    Blue hour magic seems to be unstoppable!
    This time snowy rooftops sang blues for me with the light trails of the cars in back-vocal.

    UPDATE: Great news! I was happy to get to know that this image was chosen as Photo of The Day on our famous Toronto's site blogTO for January 19, 2011! :-)

    TakeoMckinnon, ~ Bron ~, Bev Morgan, and 14 other people added this photo to their favorites.

      Ben Yes, it was calm, even there is a road below with some evening traffic but from 30th floor of the rooftop it is almost inaudible :-) Thanks. A cool sp with the moon, btw :-)

      Amazing how the blue hour light reflects off the snow on top of the roofs. Blue snow! created by natures magic of blue hour. The lighting is wonderful Katrin. That bit of light on the bottom right reminds me of warm glow of a fire.

      ImagesByClaire Merci Claire! It's about a half of hour everyday that looks like this blue hour scene, bit not always there is snow on the roofs and it makes a lovely difference :-)
      Allen Rowley Teruhide Tomori PortalTK Thank you guys!
      RiaPereira - here but mostly there Thank you Maris! Blue hour fascinates me with this ambient reflected light coming from the sky, it feels like a theatrical scene to me - works so every time :-)
      N.J. | Photography Thanks NJ! :-) It was a pleasant surprise with the Photo of the day. The snowy roofs make this blues so romantic - it's a special touch that winter adds to the blue hour magic :-)
