Photographers love "Golden Hour", since the light is much richer than at mid-day. What is often neglected is the "Blue Hour", after the sun has set.


The "Blue Hour" works well at sea, since the long exposures disguise the waves as mist, and blue water is pleasing to look at. In this case, I took advantage of the light, color and long exposures to create a still-life of a shell (as a point of interest) on the "Bowling Balls".
