When the leaves are all gone, and my town turns into a depressing 50 shades of grey photo, I get desperate for saturated colors that remind me of warm places, like Hawaii or the Bahamas. Today, it was bitterly cold at a biting one degree celsius (a wear-your-snow-suit-to-school kinda day for BC’s south coast…a laughably balmy kinda day for anywhere east of the suburbs). So I was delighted when I dropped by my favorite spot on the peninsula, to watch the winter show that Mother Nature puts on most afternoons. I was tempted to Photoshop a massive shark jumping out of the water…still might. My son is somewhere over there studying his brains out (or crying in the university pub) for his Christmas final exams at the University of Victoria.
I don’t normally post photos from my iphone, but this was just one of those shots worthy of discussion! White Rock has been a miserable, cold, soppy, soggy mess this week, so it was very exciting when the sun showed up for a spectacular slice through the sky for a few minutes before it set today. It was like a blindingly brilliant window into heaven.
Project 365 Photos: #23
Imagine racing through pink fog across a peninsula to catch this glorious sunset. I managed to get my telephoto lens on just in time, and I had to pump up the ISO, so there’s a lot of noise in the photo, but what the heck! Believe it or not, I didn’t do any colour work in Photoshop!!!!
