Natural green palette...

Lake Washington at Coulon Park in Renton, WA.
Coming from New York City, you often forget how clear water can be. You know the water around the city isn't naturally that Brown but you get use to it.
I was a little taken back by this image, not only can you see the sand but you can see the reflection of the sky and trees as well. Lucky for me it photographed!

Anyone who knows me can see a funny thing about this photo and the colors I chose to highlight below.
Oddly, they closely match paint colors I choose for my interior. They are not perfect matches but the generally feeling is there. I tend to like Cool Inconstant Colors for rooms that get a lot of natual light. This is because they change with the light. Starting off cool in the morning they get warmer throughout the afternoon and finally returning to a relaxing color at night. Hard colors to get bored with.

Color names in order from left to right:
Med Navy, Silken Corn Yellow, Mallard, Sage Grey, Moss, Periwinkle, Kelly Green.
