Landscape Photography – Late Afternoon Heat

We were having a rather pleasant spring this year but as they say, all good things must end. In just a few short days we went from 80F (27C) / 50% RH to 95F (35C) / 99% RH, leaving everyone hot and sticky. And it’s not just us here in the south. Chase Jarvis (pardon my blatant name dropping) tweeted earlier that it was over 90F in Seattle. Well, in honor of a summer come early I thought I’d post this image taken in the late afternoon heat.

  1. huh.


    Yes, the “larger” photo on my desktop seems much less saturated.

    Oh well. Nice image either way!

  2. Now, Jeff…why does the larger version seem less saturated than the posted version?

    Inquiring minds want to know.

    Oh, and the reason it’s 90 for Chase in Seattle is because it’s 62 and rainy in New Jersey. Govenor Corizine of NJ and Govenor Gregoire of Washington decided to trade weather patterns for a few days….

    • Hey Mark!

      They look the same on my calibrated MacBook but I have noticed the software I use to add the border and shadow to the small images tends to change the tint somewhat. I’m not quite sure why but I suspect it uses a slightly color space.
