The sun is going down, the warm breeze is becoming cooler and the birds are doing their happy dance before sunset.
I climb the stairs to the balcony and have a look.
Looking west, the fog is starting to roll in.
In the kitchen, the last bit of sun is shining on the island.
Time to start dinner.
While Mr. A is barbecuing, I am trying to capture "the blue hour" with my camera.
It's getting darker and darker.....
The Blue Hour!
I finally captured it!
Light is fading.
Good night moon!

Oh, I don't think I'd EVER feel BLUE with that constantly changing view to amaze and delight me! Beautiful pictures....I could almost feel the sun going down from the first until the last. Happy Monday! xx P&H
Delores, such beautiful photos capturing the blue hour. Just stunning. I just love the views you have, too.
you have no idea how much these pics lighten my soul...
Beautiful pictures and what a lovely place to live.
And you did a great job of capturing the blue hour - so pretty.
Enjoy your week.
Delores what a beautiful setting you live in and you captured it beautifully. Love the blue hour. I took a picture after reading that article it is a pretty amazing process. Your setting is pretty in daylight or bluelight, Love it!! Kathysue
Beautiful scenery and beautiful blue hour photos! I love how you captured the sky, water and reflections of your pool house lights. Stunning!
Ahhhh....love the view. Something about rolling hills and oak trees. Switch the oaks for cypresses and sunflowers...and you're in Chianti. Tough call...love them both, but I think I slightly favor Northern California.
Oh my gosh, Delores...You must be neighbor's of Jain from Once Upon A Moon, because I swear you BOTH live in Paradise!!! What heavenly vistas you enjoy!
Great job of capturing the blue hour. I've been trying but its been cloudy & rainy here for days & its just not as pretty as yours. Actually, NOTHING I could photograph could be as pretty as these photos. BRAVO!!!
Delores, you CA girls live in the most beautiful places! And you certainly did capture the "blue hour". Your photography are stunning! I think I'm ready to move to California!
What a spectacular place you have!
Good night moon and The Velveteen are two stories i read my little boy every night! He knew the words by heart... lovely memories!
You have a beautiful home. Wonderful job with the blue hour photo. Thanks for sharing.
Excellent blue hour photos! How can you go wrong with your views? Gorgeous! Love the moon shot too! It's fantastic! Your kitchen vignette is fabulous but your pool has me dreaming of a moonlight dip! LOL!

Beautiful blue hour pictures, Delores! Isn't that pretty cool? I posted mine last week and the sky was the same color as the pool. Your counter vignette is really nice....Christine
Beautiful photos, Delores!
Absolutely stunning photos!
Very, very pretty photographs, you have wonderful subjects - the landscape and your home are so beautiful! Love the blue hour - I was noticing it last night as we watched a bike race in town. But sadly, I had left my camera at home...
Are you up for a Wisteria trip soon?

Wow! I am amazed at the beauty that surrounds you. Your home is absolutely stunning, and you captured it so beautifully. I wish I had visited you sooner! Thanks for the comment you left yesterday. You are right-- being present takes work, but the payoff is worth the effort. Take care.

Oh, be still my beating heart! I'm a girl who loves to watch the light shift!!! You captured more mood than just the light. You take me back home!!!! (Okay, a lot of "!!!s", I know! =]) I'm from Pasadena and my Grandparents lived in San Luis Obispo for, well, for forever. My Grandpa built half of SLO! Boy, does this landscape take me back to my roots. I haven't been there for over 10 years!
