The Current Normal – Nature’s Palette – Primary Colurs

These photos were taken May 28/20

My camera has a palette setting on it and from time to time, I like to play around with it to see what kind of results I get. My Schubert Chokecherry was the perfect subject on a recent blue sky day. I only used the yellow and blue settings, but in retrospect should have tried the green.

Green, yellow and blue

Here are the results on the yellow setting.

    1. I would kill for blue skies right now. Dark and dreary day and pelting down rain today and tomorrow. I have to get outside and finish my ark. Thanks for commenting Bernie. Allan


  1. Those turned out great! That’s a cool option to have on your camera. That yellow is so cheerful and vibrant. I wonder if a paint store could ever reproduce it? I’d like to slather it on these dark walls 🙂

    1. Thanks. For sure. Sony has this on most new Cybershots. I thin today’s paint store could come close to the colour, but Nature always does it best. As a matter of fact, my family room has a yellow wall and I would like to put one of these up on that wall. Thanks for reading and commenting. Great to have you back Laeli. Allan

      1. Awe, you do my heart good ❤ I'm happy to be blogging and humaning again.
        I have a Sony, I should check if mine has the option. It's not a Cybershots though. It's an x 100 something. It's complicated and requires way more brain power than I have most days 🙂 Do you like your Cybershots? I have a feeling that's more the camera for me.
        Absolutely Nature does it best.
        I bet that photo would look amazing on your yellow wall. ❤

      2. I tried to get into complicated cameras when I shot film. Bought an SLR and got a mixed bag of results, some good, many bad. But, what I found is that it hurt my head to use it. I was concentrating on the settings so much, I seldom managed to get the composition I wanted. When digital arrived, my work got Sony Mavica (a clunky low resolution camera) to use in our job. I found that I was able to capture some phenomenal shots without hurting head. From there I went to 5 megapixel to 7 megapixel to 12 megapixel and now 20 megapixel Sony. They were all versions of a Cybershot. The only glitch I had with Sony was when the decided to replace the Carl Zeiss lens with their own Sony G. Now that they are back with German lenses, the results are phenomenal. Thanks for chiming in again Laeli. Allan

      3. Yes! I’d all about that lens and how mad people were when they stopped using it. I think mine had the Sony lens and while the photos are better than my phone photos they aren’t that great either.
        I’m thinking maybe I’ll sell mine then and pick up something new 🙂 Thanks for sharing your experience!

    1. It does for sure. In some cases, I am surprised by the fact that the colour I see is not the colour the camera sees. For instance yellow setting does not pick up sulphur, but red does. Thanks for reading and commenting Blanca. Hope all is well with you. Allan

  2. I love how your photos turned out to be, that’s the essence of photography, not being after to experiment and try new things! I would go with the yellow, so pretty. Thanks for sharing and have a lovely day 😀 Aiva
