The day dawned foggy and drizzly, but all the weather forecasts I checked said it would get better. Rather optimistically, I trusted them and set out to the Kvarnsjön lake, which is an easy 3.5 km hike from home. Only problem was that it started raining shortly after I set out, and by the time I was at the lake it was pouring. And also rather optimistically, I had opted not to wear any waterproof trousers (my jacket is (almost) waterproof). But it’s not all bad, after a while you get wet enough to stop caring if you get any more wet.
I made some lame attempts at photography, the Stormjacket was protecting the camera anyway but my enthusiasm was rapidly waning in correlation with the wet and cold creeping up on me. When I got home, I was still freezing after dry clothes, a bowl of hot soup and a cup of tea.
There’s no bad weather, there’s only bad judgement for not wearing bad weather clothes.1 comment
Try out your colour vision at FM 100 Hue Test! When I was using film, I used to have a lot of problems getting the colour balance right in the scans. Now with digital, Lightroom does a great job with white balance and if I’ve needed to adjust WB manually, I seem to get it quite nicely in the ballpark. Maybe experience does help. Anyway, considering these problems I used to have and still sometimes do, I had been thinking that my colour vision is seriously impaired. But apparently not, because I got a perfect score on this test! Can’t believe it.3 comments
