Warm and Cold

Going through optometry school, we learned a great deal about optics.  And not just ophthalmic optics.  We learned why the sky is blue (Raleigh Scattering), why the moon looks larger near the horizon than directly overhead, and even how the hues of certain colors can change from day to night.  Even once I understood the science behind all of this, I’m still amazed of all the colors that can be created under certain conditions.  It’s days like this that make me realize how much I enjoying being a photographer.
