84,000 Different Delusions

Not what you think.

Popsicle Color.

I told you about this yesterday. I used the baby Leica to make the picture so I had to develop it in the normal way. That’s why you are seeing it a day later.

There is something really strange about this series of pictures. This is what the sky looked like to my eye. It’s not how it looked in the camera’s LCD. There was no orange. When I uploaded it to my main machine using Photo Mechanic the orange returned, like magic.

There is plenty of magic to art. There is no magic to technology. This is technology. I’ll do some Googling around to answer the mystery.

No matter what, this is the real deal. This is how the sky looked yesterday evening. This is the sky following a large rain storm. I did nothing to the image except finish the edges.

Saharan dust has long passed by. There will be a huge dust storm in a week or two, but this isn’t that. This is just water droplets configured by nature in such a way that they reflect low sunlight causing everything to look orange.

Often I say that the result of an event is beyond my pay grade. Not this time. I understand the physics behind it. I’ve just never seen such total color coverage.

The Picture

I looked out the window and said to myself, “Oh my.” I grabbed the Leica as I went out the door. I made exposures as fast as I could because this was taking place during the blue hour, which was the orange hour. Either way, the “hour” lasts about 35 minutes. I developed and processed the files today. What you see is what I saw out of the window.

Stay Safe. Stay mighty. You know what to do. Enjoy every minute.
