Playing with colour and light

The moods and light of the valley and on Treehaven Way always gets me in - the natural soft tones and puddles of clouds. But I also get tempted to play with the light and colour - I think it provides the opportunity to draw out some details I might not see in the soft light. And sometimes it is just playing with the contrasts of flipping the light to a different solar spectrum.

A few days ago I realised I had a number of altered photos in my phone - so I thought I'd transfer them and a few others from today - and share a few.

 Below are softer naked photos of the first and last light of today.

Where would I be without my iPhone and apps?
