On the afternoon of this summer's solstice I kept getting sidetracked by the striking blueness of the sky and how everything just looked so vivid all of a sudden. It took me a little while to realize that lately most days are hazy, making the sky gray, the light pale, and the shadows faint. Everything seems a little flatter without a distinct shadow.
Here are a couple views of the roadside on a normal early-rainy-season day. The laterite dirt looks a little extra red on the left because I used the Beach Scene Setting on my camera.
