Hazy Days, not Lazy Days

Recommended Posts

Just as a postscript to the discussion last week about photographing in hazy skies: while were talking about it, I was on holiday and had 5 hazy days and one clear day. I took these on the hazy days - most are of people doing what I was doing - just getting on with making the most of the day regardless of the sky colour - or sleepy places just getting on with being sleepy places. Haze can actually produce some of the best light.

Good choice Alan, some nice images there and all in my back yard :) I took a photo the other day of a bike going the opposite way under the tree up the Canal ( lovely place ) 2 mins from where I live.. Nice Bosham pics as well looks good with or without water ( very often sit down there watching the sun go down ) you are right about hazy days...

Thanks for the comments Steve. You certainly live in a lovely area. I used to holiday there as a kid 50 years ago and things haven't changed a lot (at least outside Chichester). I hope I haven't given you any ideas... ;)

Great images that use the haze to advantage and communicate a feeling for the location. Those lazy hazy crazy historic days of summer.

 

On a bright clear blue sky day, with no more than 50% cloud coverage, preferably cumulus, all filtered through a polarizer, with the sun at 45 degrees above the horizon, these images would be very much lesser than what they are with the haze.

A really nice set of images, Alan. If you had not mentioned it in the title, I would not have even thought about blue skies.
