Default Colorblind: Mountain Zoning

Taken late this afternoon from the backyard mountain. I converted it to grayscale, although it was hardly necessary, since the original color version was almost sepia to begin with--pretty much drained of color in the dusky light. The haze in the western sky also limited contrast, so I focused manually.



Oly-755, manual focus, contrast +3, Programmed exposure.

Thanks Pavoros and Vito. You may notice I've re-uploaded the photo in the (ahem) more appropriate "weekly challenge" folder. Sorry for the doubletake. I wasn't paying attention.

Where is your town, John? I can easily imagine a local shifting of pronunciation.

Best wishes

It was in jest about "pronunciation, and my town" remember I said manzai <comedian>.
I live in the U.S.A.
But it is true yes ?
In Osaka they say " wakarahen " and in Tokyo " wakaranai ".
I know Japan better than most Japanese. The saying " yes, been there ,done that " well that holds very true.
