23 - June Gloom

23 - June Gloom

Week 23 - Monday 6/5 to Sunday 6/11

June Gloom. That's what we natives of Southern California call the annual weather pattern that pushes the low clouds formed by the coastal marine layer inland, causing a heavy morning overcast and cool but humid temperatures. It occurs around June. Hence, the name. Week 23's photo shows the heavy overcast lit by city-glow before sunrise. The street in the original was very yellow, so I threw most of the color away. Also, black & white looks “gloomier”. In case you're a budding photographer and are asking about adjusting white balance, that only works when a light source emits enough of the spectrum and our streetlights lack the blue end. Photography is educational!
