My friend Shawn added a comment to the lighthouse post I made yesterday as to the “watercolor” appearance of the background. This led me to go back and look again at a few shots I took earlier that morning, shortly before coming upon the l’Anse-au-Griffon statue. When I took these I specifically remember seeing shadings and hues in the clouds ,and reflections in the water, which I hoped the camera would catch. You’ve heard the saying “the picture doesn’t do it justice,” and I was hoping it would this time….
Those were taken about 730 in the morning local time (and for you computer geeks that might have noticed, the timestamp on the photos taken with my smartphone is exactly one hour ahead of real time. My phone hasn’t yet made the adjustment back to Eastern time which occurred when I crossed in to Québec province over a week ago).
