Blue Hour on Gorgeous Koh Samui, Thailand

I’m usually not much of a morning person, but we woke up early to watch the US soccer game (it was world cup season at the time) and I was in the mood to stay up for some pictures. Instead, the photos came out much more blue toned and I seem to have missed the sunrise altogether… but I think they still look pretty nifty!

To get “Blue Hour” photos, shoot during twilight, right before or after sunset, and you’ll find that noticeable blue hue in your photos. These were taken before sunrise, but for after sunset blue hour pics, check this image from the Brooklyn Botanical garden here. Not sure when sunrise and sunset will occur? Check out this nifty phone app which will tell you the exact time depending on your location.

Looking for more ideas on which Thai islands to visit? Krabi was another that I was hoping to get to but couldn’t fit in my itinerary. Check out Erika’s post for more Thai beach and temple suggestions and this post for more gorgeous Thailand photos! Koh Samui ranks up there as being one of the most expensive island to visit. Curious about living in Thailand long term? Here are some handy tips for living in Thailand on a budget!

Oh wow, I miss Koh Samui so much. It’s so under the radar, not a lot of people go there. Your photos are lovely!
