Lake Shala Hot Springs, Revisited.
by John Downey
I need hard drive space. My primary drive is 2TB and 35GB away from being full (with backups of course). So I decided to cull the herd of thousands and start deleting. When I came to this image however, I almost discarded it. Then thought, wow, that’s some rich color, SOOTC (Straight Out Of The Camera)! Originally, I converted another image to black and white because the boy was staring at me and I thought monochrome worked well. This version however, in retrospect, also speaks to the viewer. So, here’s the B-side of the original. If I remember correctly, that thin line of golden sunrise glow on the horizon lasted less than a minute. Follow-on frames are all blue.
