Dark and very moody. Obviously, a capture of the “Storm Chasers” with specially equipped vehicles. The fold who chase storms like this one take my admiration. It is truly dangerous and difficult work. Storm Chasers – I salute you!

Beautiful picture, Ebony. I wonder my self why there are no people sitting on the bench enjoying the clouds!
Maybe sitting in the comfort and security of a warm heated car and avoiding the elements first hand?
Definition of the Blue Hour
On a clear day, the transition between day and night can be a colorful spectacle, with the indirect sunlight tinting the sky yellow, orange, red, and blue. The blue hour refers to the phase of twilight when the Sun is so far below the horizon that the light’s blue wavelengths dominate.
Because the blue hour is a colloquial term, it doesn’t have an official definition similar to dawn, dusk, and the 3 phases of twilight. Rather, it refers to a state of natural lighting that usually occurs at daybreak in the morning and during the last stages of twilight in the evening.
However, the blue color spectrum is most likely to emerge when the Sun is between 4 and 8 degrees below the horizon. By this definition, the blue hour encompasses parts of both nautical twilight and civil twilight.
