True Colors

True Colors, Mont Vernon, NH, February 2007, Nikon D40 with 18-200mm VR lens, Focal length 22mm, Exposure 1/200 sec @ f8.0, ISO 200, exposure bias -2/3 stop, no flash, circular polarizing filter © Steven Crisp [Click on the photo to enlarge]

Still playing with the new camera. It was a beautiful crisp winter's day, so I took Frito out for a drive/walk/photo shoot (for those that aren't familiar with Frito, you can check out his blog).

Colors are so amazing. They get enhanced by the use of a polarizing filter, or perhaps better to say, their true colors shine through the glare of the sun and snow. As you can see in this picture.

So in the immortal words of Cindy Lauper, Phil Collins, the Olympics, and Kodak (and a raft of others) ...

True Colors, written by Billy Steinberg and Tom Kelly
But I see your true colors
shining through
I see your true colors
and that's why I love you
so don't be afraid to let them show
your true colors
true colors are beautiful
like a rainbow
