There’s a Chill in the Air

There’s a chill in the air.  I love it when a photo has some kind of “feel”, when you can sense what it must have been like when it was taken. I think this one creates that kind of feel.  The light was so blue, which made the temperature seem colder than it really was.  So, there’s not much to do when processing the image, probably the key thing is to get the white balance right.  In New Zealand we often set the white balance at cloudy even during sunny days.  For sure the further south you go the more this guideline holds true; there’s something strange going on up in the atmosphere.  Might that pesky hole in the ozone layer.
