Impressions from my December 1st “inspection” of Tabletop Reef, a day before the first useful Winter rains arrived in San Diego. Most of the rock structures are still pretty much submerged under the sand. I was quite disappointed by that at first, but once I started looking at what was available, I found myself “in the zone”, or whatever it is called.
The colors were really quite blue that evening – I made the photos around sunset (began just before, and utilized the light as good as possible). To give you an idea – the color temperature of daylight is around 5500K, while I’ve adjusted the color temperature of the final edits is adjusted to something between 7500K and almost 10000K, depending on the image. And they’re still pretty blue.
