  • What planet is this???

    I really was in 2 minds about sharing this, for a very odd reason too... the image looks like I went mad in editing, cranking up the purple! but I didn't, and this is how it really looked.

    The light only lasted 10 minutes, and combined with the mist was perhaps only second to when I saw the northern lights in the wow stakes!... Even the ground looks purple. Luckily I was all set up, so had chance to capture the shot and stare in amazement! So I thought I should post it anyway.

    I have a second image too, from a different angle and that has the same look, just with boulders instead of the kitkat stones in the foreground.

        That's a brilliant image and one you will certainly struggle to repeat. Glad you decided to post it.

          I have shot in conditions like that and believe it looked that colour.
          I was criticised for unrealistic colours and the vibrancy. I was expecting mist on the beach and the clouds broke and the colours went mental the first time.

          Lovely shot.

                  Brilliant capture, looks very other worldly.

                      The last one is stunning and I'm sure it would win competitions, though I'd be inclined to trim a bit off the bottom to reduce the 'squareness'.

                          Lovely shots Chris. I can quite believe the colours having experienced similar myself. A bit of advice I got from Eddie Ephraums a long time ago - "when everyone else is shooting the sunset towards the sun, turn round and look behind you". It can be surprising! Probably unwise to leave white balance set to "auto" though .
                          Regards

                            That advice is very important for sunrise and sunset in landscape photography but to go with arrive early and stay late too as this can very good way before/after sunrise/sunset.

                            Auto WB is fine in RAW if you process correctly. I always use auto WB.
