Colour is magnificent. It allows us to express ourselves or to shield ourselves. I altered the colour in this photograph because I wanted to capture different layers of light and emphasis smoke in the distance, creating a three dimensional personality. Iridescent sky sets a deep mood. Whilst the deliquescent light glistening on the water beckons a jewelled beauty, adding a lightness. Rich blues and lighter turquoise colours falsify the depth of the water.
There is such beauty in everything. It is our choice whether we alter our perception and choose to see a lightness and beauty or whether we choose darkness. Or, whether we just observe the presence of both.
