Wake Up Early To Catch The Blue Hour At Grand Tetons

The day that I went to the Grand Tetons, I left the lodge before 4:00 a.m. I still don’t remember the last time I woke up that early. One thing is for sure, this was the first time I woke up that early to take photos.

When you leave your place as early as 4:00 a.m. you will catch the sunrise. People usually call it the blue hour. If you ever try to capture some photos during the blue hour, don’t forget to wear warm clothes! I went on this trip with a cold and I was not prepared for the weather at all! Unfortunately, I could only embrace it and stop thinking about my sickness.

I think that if you have really good hidden places where you can take landscape photos, you should totally go there during the blue hour! It’s a different feeling! When I was out there taking photos, I felt relieved. There was nothing but me, my camera and nature. You create connections on a different level with nature. It’s hard to explain, you need to be there to understand it.

I cannot wait to go on vacations to take some time away from homework and find hidden places to take landscape photos during the blue hour! I’m fascinated by it!!

Here are some photos of that day:

As I wrote before, you should totally try to take pictures during the blue hour. It’s a unique feeling that you will remember forever!
