Another great challenge, I actually do a lot of garden photography during this time because of the light winds, no shadows, saturated colours and the neighbours thinking "whats that weirdo doing in the dark with his camera"!

I don't upload many of these due to fear of QC, but it's a great theme for the competition.

Second entry. Not that blue but it _is_ taken during the blue hour at pre-dawn. :-)

Los Cristianos looking towards the Cumbre. What is it about Tenerife and the blue hour? The balmy evenings help.  :)
