Purple Haze, or not so blue moon.
Looking back through some of last month photos, I was puzzled by the purple haze in my photos. i was experimenting with ISO and Aperture in manual mode trying to “just” get crisp detail in the shadows on the moon but leave the sky black. At the time I hadn’t notice the strong colour cast (it was after all dark at the time). My only thought it is a bad decision by the camera on white balance, which I normally leave set to auto (for not particular reason). Luckily there are lots of tools to fix white balance in retrospect and the one-click fix for colour in picasa fine tuning tab did the trick nicely.
