Fog and sun

This is how it looked yesterday morning from our back deck. Grey. Then I set the camera's white balance for cloudy and it turned the world a pretty blue. (I guess I could wear blue sunglasses for the same effect -- or rose colored ones.)

Later in the day the fog cleared and late afternoon sun made these wonderful highlights on a piece of gnarly, barnacle-encrusted driftwood.

Have a colorful day

You DO need rose-colored glasses! I heard about your (or at least Seattle's) record-setting rainfall. I feel for you...

At one point in my life I wore those transition lenses that would magically darken in the sun. The photo-brown versions made any day more warm and inviting.

As for your camera - I think it was trippin' ;-)

Awesome driftwood! That looks like fodder for a thermofax screen... just sayin'!
