Color of time

Our perception of time is color sensitive. This image, taken with a Hasselblad X-Pan with 45mm lens, exposed on a Fuji Velvia film at the Chiangsaeng Lake in northern Thailand.
I was a somewhat foggy morning, I walked around a small lake-side resort I stayed over the night, took this image.
The color temperature the film faithfully register gave an exact feel of a cool winter morning, quiet and peaceful.
Should this taken with digital, push the color temperature to make it looks like a hazed late afternoon shot, ma be still believable, but the total feel and intention of photography is lost.
