These shots where taken at Barr Lake on 6/5/11 and go with the previous posting. Just too tired last night to edit the photos and get the ready for web (and prints!).
All afternoon the sky in Denver had a smoky hazy look to it and before heading down to the Lake, I seriously thought things would not pull trough, In fact as the evening went on, the colors in the sky got better and better. The sun was a totally different look, red, and even the clouds took on a smoky brown, just plain odd. Even the lighting was different.
As you can see, things look a bit different. Almost has a lavender pearlescent look to the whole image. From here, things only got better. Aside from the bugs, I don’t know how many spots I had to take the healing brush to and to top it off, I managed to get a hair or eyelash inside my mirror box and it found its way to my sensor. Time to bring out the rocket blower and wet cleaning kit, I guess.
What a stunning display of light. Too bad about the wildfires that caused this.
