Photographer's Note

This lovely, green-lit building along the bank of the river Clyde in Glasgow looks very much as it is called: Armadillo. It is known as the Scottish Event Campus Armadillo. The bridge on the left is called Bellss Bridge and it was the point of view for my other blue hour photo taken on that walk which I presented before.

Even though I consider myself quite experienced with blue hour photography, I have faced two slightly surprising challenges during this session.
First: The day was so very much bright and clear and long that when the sky in the east was already very much dark, in the west the sky was bright for a very long time. For the first time I have seen this effect so strongly pronounced, as if the half of the sky was already in the nighttime, while the other half still in the daytime.
The other challenge was that all my favourite compositions were possible from bridges, and all the bridges were suspension bridges, which were shaking a lot when anybody was passing through. There were not many people passing by at this time of the day, but it was enough to cause the vibrations. I took some photos on the shaking bridges in Dublin or Newcastle and the pictures turned out great, so I hoped the camera will not pick up the subtle vibrations but it did.
The only pics which were clear and sharp were the ones which I took from the riverbanks, so these are the only ones I am going to share even though the compositions are probably less optimal.
