Was the sky really this blue? A bit of blue was indeed present, but the camera pumped it up due to my error. I forgot to reset the color bias of the camera for the scene. (On digital cameras that setting, of course, is called “white balance.”)

I found the blue so striking, however, that I left it mostly unchanged, reducing the color saturation only slightly.

The date was November 2, 2012, at 6:56 am (daylight savings). Official sunrise that day was scheduled for 7:20, but as I’ve noted before, there’s a delay of some twenty minutes before the sun tops the highest point of the eastern ridge.
