The blue hour or heure bleue, as the French call it, is the term that in photography identifies a particular moment of the day when the sun is now under the horizon and the light has not yet given the way completely to darkness.
It's the moment in which the sky has a predominant shade of deep blue, it's a magical moment, ephemeral.
I love to take photos at this moment, I'm always amazed by the result on film or camera sensor
