Challenge: Your Best "Blue Hour" Image

Post your best, or at least your favorite, blue hour image, and tell us where it was made. According to Google (Aug. 30, 2014) ...

"The blue hour generally lasts the 20 to 30 minutes just after sunset and just before sunrise. For example, if the sun sets at 5 p.m., the blue hour would last from approximately 5:10 p.m. to 5:30 p.m.. If the sun rises at 5 a.m., the blue hour lasts from about 4:30 a.m. to 4:50 a.m."

NOTE:  To forestall any unpleasant exchanges, all participants in this thread hereby agree, absent specific evidence to the contrary, that all images posted are each member's own images and that any attached EXIF data is factual (allowing for time zone variations).

Here's mine.  It was my first attempt at making a blue hour image as well as artificially illuminating a foreground subject.  The EXIF shows EST time, two hours ahead of the actual time at Cape Royal (No matter where I always forget to reset the time in my camera from EST).
