Perth does not suffer from a lot of fogs.
So, when yesterday’s rain turned into a night-time fog, I was drawn to attempting to capture the ghostly atmosphere.
I found that sodium vapour street lights are far too intensely yellow and even with attempts at photoshopping the colour balance the quiet mistiness was lost.
Even with major colour and saturation correction too much was lost. Perhaps the reality of modern city streets will stop them from becoming eerie. Or maybe a sodium filter would help.
Looking through a tree with only distant white mercury vapour lights showing seems to catch some of the atmosphere.
Oh well, I hope I can remember these lessons the next time Perth is foggy and quiet.
