The Laundered Sky
Blued with Blue
I promise I have not 'enhanced' these photos with that handy function which tends to improve images. This is their true colour, pure and simple.
This morning it looked as though the sky had been freshly laundered and tinged with 'blue'. Does anyone recall those little muslin packets of blue dye which were used in the past to make white linen look whiter?
I think the sky was rinsed with that today and someone overdid the dose.
