Two Marshes — 6 Comments

  1. The palette of colors in the photo of the Louisiana marsh makes the photo appear warmer. Likely just differences in time of day between the two pictures, but seems appropriate.

    • It was indeed the time of the day. The Potter Marsh image was taken around 9:00 AM Alaska time, which is roughly what, five hours after sunrise? That is way too late for the post-sunrise “golden hour.” The Avery Island shot was recorded less than an hour before sunset with the sun very low in the sky to the left, so it was in warmer light. And, as you suggest, the air temperature was around 20 degrees warmer as well.
