yellow sky

The sky turned a beautiful yellow color as the sun was going down when I shot this bike on one of the piers at Lake Ontario.

This was taken moments after the bike shot.  This is facing North on the lake at the very end of the pier.

        I think the turquoise color comes from a combination of things. The water becomes a brownish color near the shore because the rough water of the lake churns up sand in the shallows. The lake was very calm this day so the water near the beach and pier stays clear and clean. The clear blue sky and the yellow setting sun reflect in the clear water causing the turquoise color. That’s my story and I’m stickin’ to it.

    Wonderful shots. The colours are indeed unusual, and the the combination of the colours in the first shot is especially nice. Even the bike and the rail are a good tone of blue.

    These colours remind me of the paint jobs on cars of a certain era, late 50’s early 60’s I think. Nostalgic colour in nature!

      Thanks, ehpem. For some reason I’m drawn to the color yellow and I don’t know why. I don’t intentionally buy anything yellow. Maybe it’s just a bright, cheerful color and I just like it.

        I like yellow too, though I don’t wear it, or drive it. I did paint my house an ochre yellow but it faded to a colour that I don’t much like.

      Thanks, John. I think that the Nikon sensor accentuates yellow, too. I have the mode setting set to normal but sometimes that can be a little contrasty for my taste. For these shots though, it seemed perfect.I used to travel with a few filters in my bag but now I don’t carry any. I really should replace my polarizer, though.

      Thanks, John. I think this effect can be easily duplicated in post processing in Lightroom by pushing the “Temp” slider to the right and adjusting the color sliders. But that’s cheating and we don’t do that. Do we?
