07.30.2015 Mount Pollux Sunrise

I am not sure that three weeks counts as throw back for this Thursday.  And I am also not sure that it replaces the fullish moon that I had hoped to photograph tonight only to be, so it seems, obscured by an overcast sky with the threat of thunder storms.  I’ll keep my eye to the sky.

Here is an image that caused me some concern.  The camera’s sensor had captured the sun with a red ring around it.  The Chromatic Aberration tool in Camera Raw had no effect.  So I selected the yellow of the sun, reversed my selection and cloned the red away.  Seems like a decent save.  I doubt that it would be kosher enough for a competition but I think it can fly for blogging.  🙂

    Nice shot of Mr. Sun. Our sunrise was clear and transparent from the start. All day was cloudless with deep blue sky at about 80˚. They don’t come better than this. I golfed with 3 friends to celebrate.

    I’m glad your repairs were covered.

    I’m so glad your repairs didn’t turn into a financial nightmare. And one-day service is the best.

    We’re contending with cloudy skies, too, but they did bring a slightly cooler morning. The disappointment is that there’s a six-minute transit of the ISS tonight, and I don’t think it will be visible — unlike your sun!


  3. As long as you didn’t ham it up too much I think the picture might still be kosher, although that will prevent you from bringing home the bacon.

    Why did the sensor do that Steve? Is there a way of avoiding it? The end result is excellent.

    • I think it is caused by moisture in the air, Andrew. I am not sure if there is a way just as with other problems such as flare. We can reduce the effect and now PS allows us to remove it but I think that is a problem of ethic proportions.


  5. Fantastic photo and even if you had to “fiddle” with the image, this one is a beauty. I like the “ethic proportion” thing. 🙂
