There are two ways: 

  • using the GetDirectoryReference
  • looping through a containers blobs and checking the type

The code below is in C#

CloudBlobContainer container = blobClient.GetContainerReference("photos");

//Method 1. grab a folder reference directly from the container
CloudBlobDirectory folder = container.GetDirectoryReference("directoryName");

//Method 2. Loop over container and grab folders.
foreach (IListBlobItem item in container.ListBlobs(null, false))
{
    if (item.GetType() == typeof(CloudBlobDirectory))
    {
        // we know this is a sub directory now
        CloudBlobDirectory subFolder = (CloudBlobDirectory)item;

        Console.WriteLine("Directory: {0}", subFolder.Uri);
    }
}
