Blue Hour – Darwin Harbor
Time and energy has not been available for me to photograph new motives for Scott Thomas’ latest assignment, “Blue Hour”.
But recently I found this photo from March last year.
We were in Darwin, Northern Territory, our final destination after 6 weeks of travel in Australia. The climate here is tropical. This warm and lovely evening we were sitting on the harbor in a large area with numerous fish restaurants. I enjoyed the nice atmosphere and food – and admired the blue sky over the busy and warm illuminated pier.
Not long after that photo was taken heavy winds suddenly blew up and a storm with rain was upon us. Then everything was chaos. The lightweight chairs and tables overturned and chairs, cutlery, napkins etc flew around – and some of all this flew into the water.
All were busy saving themselves and their possessions – and food! – in dry weather below the covered section of the area.
“Blue Hour” can also be a “Dramatic hour”!
Fortunately, the weather this evening soon became peaceful again :-)
