January 16th, 2011 – Purple Haze

This image was taken back in November at the beginning of winter here in Seattle.  It’s a panorama of three frames first tone-mapped in Photomatix and stitched together using Photoshop.  While a few clouds in the sky would have made the image more interesting, the low sun angle and atmospheric conditions created a nice glow and a colorful haze.
