More experiments with light… this time with reflections 🙂
Colour and light are endlessly fascinating!
This image (above) was taken yesterday – a sunny day.
I was so surprised at the (mainly) warm purple reflection thrown by the cobalt coloured bottle. At first I thought it was my camera white balance… but I checked and it was set correctly for the setting. This really made me wonder why. The sun was emitting (not directly) light onto the surface through UV filtered glass (which roughly speaking, stops to a certain point the blue light).. making the warm timber surface ‘red’ of sorts, giving this fabulous reflection. The reflection really is this colour! As in my last post too, the light on the surface is picking up the texture.
What do you think? Any theories here? I’d love to hear your thoughts, but please offer them in a friendly fashion… thank you 🙂
Moving onto today. This image was taken today – a grey overcast day.
This is the same setting and the same subject matter. The image was taken 3 hours earlier than the previous day. Still a touch of that warm purple reflection, but such a different result.
These are just my ponderings… not any sort of proven theory… but it’s so interesting. I love light and colour!!
On a very different note, I’d like to say – “Rest in peace, Robin Williams.”
