Misty morning colour

I’m always fascinated by shades of purple that appear in a mist being chased by the rising sun and enjoy watching the islands and far shore being uncloaked.

Enjoy.

fall mist

There are so many reasons to love fall. Clear skies seems so much bluer in the cooler air. Of course, all the vibrant shades of the rainbow are painted on the hillsides take your breath away. But one of my favourite autumn things is a calm misty morning at the lake.

June moon at dawn

The June ‘super moon’ was setting as we rose for work this morning. It may not look like a super moon but by the time it dropped to the horizon, the sun had brightened the sky so much the moon faded completely from view. I’ll share a few shots of it rising in my next post.

One of the stops on our January business trip was at Canal Park, Duluth MN. Our hotel was at the edge of the harbour on Lake Superior. The morning light was so gentle.

Straight out of the camera, this scene appears to be shades of black and white.

When I reduce the saturation to zero in Lightroom, any hint of colour is removed and the image looks like this:

So what is the colour that tints the original image? I took the image into PhotoShop to take a closer look. With the colour selector dialogue box open, I can use the eyedropper tool to click on an area of the image to see what colour that pixel or pixels hold. To which colour do you think the grey shades are related?
