Blue Hour on the Boardwalk

Last Thursday, members of my photography club met at Lake Sumter Landing in The Villages to take some photos during blue hour.  For all my non-photographer peeps, blue hour is basically that time after the sun sets and before it gets completely dark.  That type of sky usually only lasts about fifteen to twenty minutes.

Most of us walked the Boardwalk scouting out spots that we thought might work for our blue hour compositions.  Then we waited…….

The actual sunset that evening was quite spectacular.  Here’s an image I took (and enhanced a bit) while I was waiting.

Finally….the moment of truth.  Here are my two favorite shots of the evening.

Fall means polo season in The Villages.  So this past Sunday I drove my golf cart to the polo field and tailgated with the other polo fans to watch the matches. Naturally, I was mostly interested in capturing some images that I could turn into art.

Sure is fun to take my photos and turn them into paintings.  This is at Lake Sumtner Landing in The Villages.
