07.29.2019 Monadnock in the pink

I had hoped for a bright colorfully cloudy sky over Monadnock with a foggy valley below.  I hadn’t pictured it quite  this way but no complaints either.

The view is from behind the fire station in New Salem, MA.

    It’s always nice when even if the scene doesn’t play out as we’d hoped we still come away with something special. Beautiful photo, Steve.

  4. You could not have planned for this color scheme, Steve. At times the unexpected exceeds anything we could have hoped for.

  5. Good work: pretty in pink. My distant view of Mount Monadnock fell far short of yours.

    This is one of the best examples of sky-blue pink I’ve seen. There’s an interesting article about the possible source of the color’s name, its role in American and British culture, and even Uncle Wiggly stories here. I was introduced to it by an Anglophile some years ago; she was fussing about the absence of a sky-blue pink crayola in her box of colors. Even with the right crayon, I think it would be hard to perfect a sky-blue pink landscape as well as you did here.

    • Nature provides. As ingenious as some of us may be, it’s difficult for us to complete with Nature in all its glory. Of course, a little credit is due the camera’s sensor which in the case of Canon’s 5D Mark II tens a bit towards the magenta. And then there’s the matter of the fog capturing and diffusing the light as the sun approached the horizon to the right. I never read any of the Uncle Wiggly stories. Many of the other standards escaped my reading as well.
