How to swap Fog light bulb

Okay, stupid question here. I just bought a set of NOKYA H-10 2500K 45W bulbs and went to put them in. I've replaced light bulbs before and tried to twist the thing counter clockwise and it won't budge. Before I break something, which way do I turn the damn thing?

I don't remember but it's only a quarter turn. Only problem I had was getting them seated prior to making the turn to secure them.

No pushing needed. Just turn 1/4 counter-clockwise and pull out.

Thanks guys, I appreciate the feedback. I got the lights in the mail and only had a few minutes before I had stuff to do so I was rushed. I got all day to swap them out today. I'll take my time and twist them counter clockwise.

I wanted to go with yellow fog lights. A lot of people are using the laminate stuff on the outside lens. I didn't want them to look yellow all the time, just when I turned them on. With my light set-up, I have a lot of variables. My Hella's behind the grill are next to mod. I am going to put in HID bulbs because I was disapointed with the range. The HID will be a long pencil beam. I don't keep my fogs on like a lot of people do. I use them when needed.
I also installed the harness and relay for the day time driving lights which are the inside marker lights from the headlight. Then I can be cool with them on.... not fogs
Long story short.... that's why I changed out the bulbs, I am happy with what I did.

The bulbs he swapped the stocks for are Nokya Arctic Yellow bulbs. They do what he said, look normal when not on, yellow when they're on. Some people say the yellow is easier to see in foul weather. I made the same swap a month ago and am happy with them so far!

Exactly what I was looking for. I have the yellow fogs for fog/snow (even if some say it isn't better), the Hella's behind the grill for long reach (once the HID are in), DTRL to look cool during the day (I even put a switch in the system so I can turn the effect off) and any combination of all the lights because I did the Fog lights on anytime mod and the Hella's are hooked up so I can turn them on anytime.
