The Blue Period

There is a time of day, long after the sun sets, called the blue period.  The light of the sun is "warm" in comparison to the light from the blue sky.  After the warm light goes away with the setting sun, as it gets darker, the light outside is blue.  You may have seen this if you think about it - perhaps you were in your house and had put a lamp on because it was getting dark out.  Then you look out your window, and notice that it is blue outside, as seen through the window.  I think this blue light does an amazing thing with the gardens outside the dining room window.

This is so beautiful with the blue, purple and yellow flowers, but it is hard to imagine that this is real light and not some trick with your camera.

Well.... I did enhance the blue some... Very perceptive of you. I made it this blue, more than what existed, and then liked the effect. Your brother cannot be trusted! :-)

Haha! Laughed at your comment, Ken, that you can't be trusted. Oh No!! I've always trusted my big brudder!! I also thought the blue was really intense. So no more trying to pull the wool over our eyes. "Raspberries". bsk
