Blue hour at Union Station

There are two things that I really love to shoot: train stations and neon signs.  Union Station in downtown Denver has both, and is a real beauty of a structure as well.  On my recent trip up to Denver, I knew I wanted to catch this place in the morning, either before or during sunrise.  I definitely wanted to get a shot with that fabulous neon sign all lit up.  It's just so cool.

So, I got up early and walked in the cold about 10 blocks down to the station.  There was a light snow blowing in the air, and having just come from warm Texas, it felt like I was in the depths of winter.  When I arrived and saw that construction barrier I was a bit disappointed, but the light was excellent and I knew the HDR process would give me some nice light across the streets as well.  It ended up being pretty awesome, actually!
