Blue Hour Seascape, Ireland

Blue hour, especially the morning blue hour, is a special time for photography. At this time of year in Ireland photographing the coast before sunrise to capture that time when all appears blue, before the strength of the summer sun shines from beyond the horizon requires an early start.

It doesn't always look like this, indeed the heavy cloud seen here that adds to this image later became a block to the golden light of sunrise off the Irish coast.

But with this image from 04:15 in July, calm conditions were at least a bonus compared to previous days at Antrim's Giant's Causeway and over in the west in County Mayo.

Recent days have of course seen a heatwave but for most of Ireland summer, in the main, has looked a bit like this image above.
And I quite like it, heatwaves bring sunshine and also haze so not ideal conditions for landscape photography.

Join me, Panoramic Ireland, to photograph scenes like this from around Ireland.
