Lovely sun drenched high pressure these last two weeks. Clear as a bell. The invisibility, for want of a better word, of the high scintillating light inspires a palette of transparent pigments – cobalt, helio turquoise, winsor lemon, raw sienna – then tweeked it with some cadmium yellow deep on the focal point of ….yes, the street lamp, which looks suspicious like those pesky railings to my cautious eye.

All the usual problems with colour reproduction, even with my new Cannon eos 400 (this was shoot using the landscape colour filter, which was a mistake, as it bumps up the saturation & contrast).
