Morning Walk 07.31.2014.03 on Flickr.
This light, in combination with mist, always mystifies me. I have seen and worked with it before, I think. The thing of it is that the pictures become extraordinarily fragile in post processing. Virtually anything you do aside from basic sharpening and denoising blows them up. They pixelate; they vignette; their colors go wonky. Forget about it. You can’t pull any detail out; you can’t hide anything.  It has something to do with how the mist and the light interact and almost always occurs when the clouds are in  the west, as they are here, so you get no help managing the sun, It is a late summer phenomenon, a sign of fall, I am thinking.
