For this assignment, I enhanced the color contrast in photoshop a little by using an orange warming filter on the sunny side of the landscape. Orange and Blue are opposites on the color wheel providing great color contrast. It was a bright, warm welcome to the arriving new day.
One August morning in 2004, my daughter and I hiked to Mills Lake in Rocky mountain National Park. We arrive early to capture the still water and the sunrising in the east just coming over the peaks that contrasted the shading side in cool blues and the sunny side in a warm sunny glow.
