Beautiful Sky and a Trick
As I was driving, I saw this incredible skyscape and immediately pulled over to snap. Normally it's not a great idea to shoot into the sun, so I had to hurry before it moved from behind the cloud cover.
That's when I realized I was viewing this scene through my new sun glasses with sepia lenses.I wanted the photo to look just the way I was seeing things; so I took off my glasses, placed them over the lens of the camera, and snapped away. Yes, you could do this with your photo software, but the sunglasses produce a different look. Reminds me of the good old days when I carried around a camera, various lenses, and tons of filters, including the UV filter for taking photos through glass, the sepia filter, the portrait filter, the macro filter, etc. Using sunglasses is so much easier!
