Per Wikipedia: "The blue hour is the period of twilight... where there is neither full daylight nor complete darkness. The time is considered special because of the quality of the light". You guys all know that, but in some ways to me it is even more special than the golden hour. Well here a shot I was determined to get in the "blue hour". I would love to see other "Blue Hour" photographs...

I think water lends itself very well for shots at this time.

I like that you went all blue instead of finding a yellow thing to contrast against.
