Part of what makes this place so beautiful is the amazing changes caused by subtle alterations in light. I’ve been looking forward all winter to what we call a “sepia day,” and today we got it.
Sepia days are wintry days when the combination of cloud cover and sunlight washes out the colors, and puts a slight brownish, “sepia” tint over everything, as if we lived in an old-fashioned daguerreotype. The brown, I must point out, is a trick of the light, not pollution.
Unfortunately, it’s hard to capture this in a photograph, as our cameras struggle to “correct” what must be anomalies in “normal” color.
