The Blue Hour

One of my favourite times of day to take pictures is during the twilight or blue hour when the lights start to come on and the sky turns a beautiful blue.  It does take a number of attempts to get the "perfect shot" especially when you have crowds of people around getting in the way of your open shutter.  I have also spent a few evenings in London in the freezing cold to get a shot I am happy with, but despite the frostbite it has been worth it.
