Fotopark Challenge #BlueHour
It is the moment of inspiration for painters and poets, the romantic and the melancholic at heart – and for photographers: blue hour. The moment when the sun sinks slowly beneath the horizon and the sky is lit in a deep, rich, glowing blue by its fading rays. It is the time for capturing particularly intense and atmospheric pictures and this physical phenomenon also appears for a brief moment before sunrise and transports landscapes, buildings, plants, and people into a magical world of their own.

Leica would like to invite you to share one of your most unique images taken during blue hour, with the Leica Fotopark Community.

  • Upload your favourite blue hour picture to Leica Fotopark with the title #BlueHour by 16 July 2015 and take part in Leica’s competition.
