Hoodoo Hallucination

Direct light, indirect light, bounced light, snow white and unimagined shapes combined to created this scene. Bryce Canyon is a one-of-a-kind fairyland. Nope, I didn't touch the "blue button". I can't explain it, but it was there on the original. Bumped the orange saturation a very little, again less than you might think. The yellows are untouched. I did have my Nikon on "Vivid 2"...maybe that accounts for the blue.The fun and interesting part of this photo is to notice where the bounced or reflected light hits and the color variations that are created.

See Youngarama's comment below of blue shift. Thanks for the info.A beautiful place and nice shot Knight. It is another of America's cpativating landscapes. The blue shift is probably due to the colour temprature of the light in that region. Shadow colour temps are usually in the cool zone and with the white balance of the sensor probably favouring the direct light it would inhance or exagerate the blue shift. This may be what caused such an interesting contrast of colours.

Explored: best #19 Thanks for comments and faves.
