Central Park's Blue Hour at The Lake


This is in NYC’s Central Park — near the Bow Bridge. And it’s called The Lake.

The Story

What a wonderful time of day. This capture was taken at blue hour. When is that — you might be asking? Well it varies by day, month and time of the year. For this particular capture I was at Central Park around 6:00 AM.

And what is blue hour? Well it’s fundamentally the hour before sunrise or the hour after sunset. It’s that time of day that best frames your photographs — in these brilliant blues, reds, oranges, violets and yellows.

Call To Action

Yes, it’s damn early to be up at 6:00 AM. But if you are a morning person — it’s well worth the commitment :-)
