Blue Super Moon

While I did not have much luck with the Super Moon earlier this month, I decided to create a blue hour version by using a long exposure to build up the sky’s blue color.

A few days before the Super Moon, I accompanied members of the Syracuse Photographers Association Meetup Group in a Spring shoot around Liverpool, New York. It was another cloudy evening and the sunset was non-existent.  I decided to wait for Blue Hour and took these photos of a couple of the churches in town.

Notice the difference in the artificial lighting from the Liverpool First United Methodist Church and the First Presbyterian Church a block away.

    Very beautiful blue hour photos, especially the third, this is my favorite. I wonder how many different blue tones there would be to catch in “one blue hour session”.

    You have some truly beautiful blues here. Alas, I wasn’t happy with mine, so no post from me this time around! :-(

  5. Very special and beautiful ! The first picture is a dream in blue, I love it.
    I did not participate this time, sorry Scott, I just did not manage to get the “blue” of this magic hour.
